The short game of golf generally will take up to 60% of your shots during most rounds of golf and so it makes good sense to spend at least 60 percent of your practice time working on short shots around the green and wedges from inside 120 yards.
In order to get good at hitting wedges and chipping as well as bunker play there is no substitute for practice. You need to spend time at the range and the putting greens working on these shots with r11 irons as the touch and feel only come from consistent practice. When it comes to the wedge game you want to practice hitting shots at the range from 40 to 120 yards. You should be confident that you can hit the greens and be within 20 feet of the hole from these distances.
With chipping you want to make sure that you are practicing from all kinds of different lies such as buried lies and bare lies as well as uphill and downhill as this will make the lies you face on the course seem easy in comparison. Bunker play is also important so be sure to spend some time during each practice session working on these shots.
When it comes to hitting bunker shots with taylormade r11 irons you want to keep the ball lined up with your left foot and also use an open stance which means your feet are pointing to the left of the intended target. Do not decelerate on bunker shots and hit the sand a few inches behind the ball using a cushion of sand to lift the ball out of the bunker.
Putting is no doubt an important aspect to the game of golf and it can be a great equalizer since most people have the physical talent to putt well. There are a lot of keys to becoming a great putter, the first step is to come to a decision on the kind of putter and putting technique you want to use.
There are various models of putters that you can use so you should go to a local golf store and try out the different options that you have and then pick one that you like and make a decision to stick with it. Even if you have bad putting performances the chances are that it is your stroke or some other mental factor that is the problem and not the putter. Use the above tips to help you reduce your golfing handicap and have more fun on the golf course.
