How can it be fabricated when short games shots are directly related to GIR's, if you don't have a GIR you have a short game shot. Unless your graeme mcdowell who's hitting over 93% of greens this year.
What i dont get is why you group anything with in 80 yards short game shots. Wouldn't it be more beneficial to break things down and know what your bad at. If you say your bad at short game, i have no clue what that means. Is it chipping, sand shots, pitch shots.. I would never put putting in short game, like i said, Putting is its own beast. The better you are the narrow the scope in which you have to look at your game. If he's constantly hitting chip shots then he should work on that the most, then work on other shots. Like i always work on my wedge distance since i hit alot of wedge to half wedges.
I don't Tiger goes out and says, I will work on short game today, I think he goes out and says, I will go work on chipping, flop shots, bunker shots. You got to know what to work on to work on it. Generalizations wont do anybody any good.
