We’ll probably never be able to drive the ball 340 yards like Bubba Watson, launch laser-guided fairway woods at the pin like Tiger Woods or generate incredible backspin on our iron shots like Rory McIlroy – but there’s absolutely nothing stopping us from honing a razor-sharp short game that will cut shots off our handicaps.
We’ve teamed up with Cleveland Golf and Srixon to create this Scoring Academy – a four-part series that will help you improve your pitching, chipping, bunker play and putting. Six lucky readers won the opportunity to attend our intensive two-day Scoring Academy at the stunning Verdura Resort in Sicily. They benefited from the expert tuition of Tour Pro Andrew Murray and the latest Cleveland Golf clubs and Srixon balls – and you can share their journey and improve your short game alongside them over the next three months.
We’ll start by examining the importance of the short game in making your scores, giving you a go-to technique for pitching, chipping, bunker play and putting.
You can also watch our video interviews with each of the six lucky TG readers who attended the Scoring Academy here.
