Gabby Hayes, now there was a man to admire. An early metrosexual role model, and a real chick magnet (as long as he stayed downwind).
I know the short game won't come to me and agree I need to focus on it as all this unfolds. I think the reason I've always assumed retired guys have good short games is that they've got the time to practice. I know if I want to find my short game I need to 'practice, practice, practice.' That must mean, as anyone who has ever taken piano lessons or been related to anyone taking piano lessons knows, that my short game must be somewhere near Carnegie Hall. (That's a reference to the oldest piano teacher joke in the book).
I would suggest knowing and executing the right technique before practice.. ًhave you taken a look at the short pitching videos from bit Erik and Mike?
