A Feel for "Feel"

It’s the first to abandon ship, “Feel”. Over the winter with lack of play and a drastic change in the conditions, those “feel” type shots are difficult. What you have in the summer or even after repeated play and/or practice, is a feel for the shot you are about to hit.

“Feel”, in most regards lies heavily in its connection to memory and experience.

To gain “feel”, practice shot making instead of mechanics.

Place a dozen golf balls around the chipping green in different positions and challenge yourself to get up and down as many times as you can.

Take the feel of those shots to the course and you’ll be amazed how good you are around the greens. Welcome back “feel”.
