Shots around the green, short game shots—knowing how to execute these shots is vital.
Welcome to Essential Golf tutorials. Professional golfers Michael Jacobs & Erika Larkin give you some top tips on shots around the green. These tips will be beneficial for golfers of all skill levels.

These shots are indispensable, and the better you get at them, the lower the score. When you’re hitting your short shots, you want to develop a setup where your feet are very close together. That’s a very important feature. With a wide stance, it gets much more difficult to get the right descent and strike on the ball.

Club selection is also important here. If you have a clear picture in mind of the trajectory of the shot you want, you’ll be able to choose a club that will allow you to execute that shot cleanly.
