The Short Game - Hit Your Short Shots Hard

Have you ever watched the pros hit their chips and pitch shots when they're close to the green? One thing you'll quickly realize is that although the shots are short ones, they hit em hard.

Accelerating the clubhead through impact is as vital to the short game. It's the only way you'll consistantly put the ball close to hole. If you practice this you'll also find that by hitting em hard you'll impart a backspin on the ball. This backspin will give you control over the shot. So don't baby the short chips and pitches, be aggressive. The hands must lead the club through impact and you must make a descending hit on the ball and whatever you do don't forget to follow through.
