Begin Your Journey to Better Scoring
From experience, we’ve learned that players who don’t work on their Scoring Zone don’t really score that much better even if they have improved their ball striking. Over the last 20 years, we have developed our system of teaching the short game called The Scoring Zone. 40% of your score is based on how well you putt. 30 % is based on what you do from the edge of the green to about 70 yards out from the green. The Scoring Zone makes up 70 % of your score. If you don’t embrace it you will never realize your scoring potential.
A further benefit of working on your Scoring Zone is that your ball striking will improve. Since many of the fundamentals are the same, they transfer to a player’s full swing. For example, a player will typically stand at nearly the same posture regardless of whether they are driving the ball or putting. If a player stands in poor posture for the full swing, they will most likely set-up in the same poor posture in the short game. To improve, they need to correct their playing posture in all parts of their game.
Another example is hitting a half wedge shot. When a player has a loop in their golf swing, they will struggle hitting a half shot because they can’t stop the club halfway back since they need more time to make their loop. As they learn to hit half wedge shots by keeping the club on plane, they will keep the club on plane in their full swing. The interesting thing is that it is much easier for a player to correct a swing plane problem with a wedge because the club is heavier and moves slower so the player has a much better feel during the motion.
