Total Game Improvement Plan
The Total Game Improvement Plan is a feast of tips and drills, all aimed squarely at firing consistency, accuracy and power into your long game. While all the advice here should prove useful, you'll get the most out of this supplement by applying tips that target your own, personal weakness – and for that, we encourage you to gather some stats.
From the high-tech shotlink system used on the PGA Tour to numerous phone-based apps, everyone is looking at numbers to improve. The stat-tracking scorecard (below) is designed to simplify the process, and let you easily identify where your game is strong and weak. stats prove the most significant ingredient of a score is greens in regulation (GIR).
But some analysis of fairways hit, and your miss pattern for fairways and greens, will help you form an accurate picture of what to work on. When you have that, we've got advice to help. With tips on set-up, accuracy, shot shaping, strategy, power and more, you're sure to find something valuable.
We’ve teamed up with Tour coach and TG Top 50 pro Jon Wallett to bring you this short game guide and help you improve in the four crucial scoring areas - pitching, chipping, bunkers and putting.
Amongst others, Jon coached David Howell for three years on the European Tour and his mantra when coaching elite players is ‘lowest score wins most money’. Jon has a unique record in that, of the seven players he has coached on Tour, all of them reduced their stroke average in the time they worked with him.
So, who better to help you score better too. Each of the four areas in this supplement is divided into three sections – master the mechanics, practice to perform and take it to the course. Each provides a key drill, image and tour tip. There’s plenty for you to choose from and links to the TG website where some of these and hundreds more tips are explained on video.
So dive in and make the commitment to lower your stroke average like the Tour players this summer.
