Scoring School

Experienced golfers and tour professionals realize the most effective way to lower scores is by developing good short game techniques. On day one, develop “green savvy” to read the green, feel the distance, and then set up for a dependable and repeatable putting stroke. The second day is all about chipping. Strike your chip shots solidly every time and learn the secret to consistent distance control. Top off your short game on day three with techniques for wedge shots inside 70 yards and bunker skills. This is recommended for golfers of all skill levels

The Scoring School includes:

  • 4 ½ hours of group instruction
  • Putting strategy - Reading the greens
