In relative terms, it's pretty easy to hit a 30 foot chip shot onto the green from a reasonably flat surface. But what happens when your ball ends up in a tough spot, like the down hill side of a fairway bunker or when your ball lands 20 yards short of the turn in a dog leg left? Watching the pros in those situations scramble out of them and make par (or better) make it seem easy. You know in your heart it's not. So how do they do it? They PRACTICE those odd ball scenarios all the time! You need to do that too.

Throw a hand full of balls up in the air around a bunker or hill. Each one will give you the opportunity to do some "odd ball" practice.

P.S. I've learned we've just tripled the number of our Australian visitors in the past few weeks. Many say it's because of my first book, "On the Other Hand," the only true swing book for lefties. It's good to know that right-handers have made it their "go to" book also! Check it out. Just click here.

"Steve’s book is a welcome alternative to the often confusing and hyper-technical discussions contained in other books and magazines.  From driver to putter to correcting swing faults, Steve’s presentation will improve every player at any level."
