How Does Your Short Game Stack Up?

First of all – HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope 2009 brings you lower scores, more birdies and . . . oh yeah, health and prosperity.

I am a big believer that knowledge is power, and that is never more true that when it comes to assessing your golf game and determining where to apply your time and energies in that never ending quest to lower your handicap. The Wedge Guy has been on oobgolf for a few months now, and I’d love to know more about all of you. So, in the spirit of being one big happy family here at TheWedgeGuy and oobgolf, I thought it would be both fun and very helpful for all of us to know more about the short games of our readers. I’ve created a simple little survey that I think gives us a chance to see a “snapshot” of our short games, and how they compare to other golfers. It should only take you a few minutes and once we get a statistically valid number of responses, I’ll share with you the results so that you can see how your short game stacks up.

Take the survey now! (RESULTS)

My goal here is to dig into the real scoring shots and scoring clubs and find out where we need to work, and that will help me bring you more pertinent content in 2009. My goal here is to always give you something that you can take to the course or practice range to help improve your scoring, and to have fun along the way. So, please take the survey and let’s see who we all are when it comes to scoring skills and our approach to the short game.

And as always, if you have a topic you’d like me to sound off about, just click on the “Ask Terry” link at the bottom of any WedgeGuy article and comments and I’ll get right on it.

Again, I wish all of you a healthy, prosperous New Year, with the lowest scores you’ve ever shot!!!

Took the Survey and can't wait to see the results :)

I enjoy reading your column. A couple of weeks ago you wrote about choking up on wedges to create in-between clubs. I tried gripping at the bottom of the grips and that took about 10 yards off each club. I've only played once since then so I don't know if it's going to make a difference yet.

GD did a write up on averages of the "Big 4" -total driving, "scrambling" (up and down from 30 yds and in), 3 putt avoidance and GIR for the tour leader, tour average, a scratch golfer, a 10 and a 20 capper. I fell within scratch golfer range for 3 but a 20 handicapper's average for scrambling. Where do you think I need work?

In case you are wondering, I think it was...

Anthony Kim - total driving (Distance and fairways hit)
Tiger, Tiger Woods - GIR
Padraig Harrington - Scambling
and I can't remember who the best 3-putt avoider was, but all those guys are pretty darm good.
