You've heard the golfing clich "drive for show and chanel sale putt for dough" a thousand times, and for sure it has a lot of merit.
Great putting is so often the decider when it comes to most tournaments, and on the days you are really putting well it is truly a great feeling (not for your opponent! ).

When you put together your practice schedule for each visit to the range, make sure you include a designated period for iron play - specifically accurate iron play.
The purpose of your irons is to get the ball close to the hole, never confuse practicing your irons with your driver which is all about length.
