ABOUT THE SHORT GAME METHOD


 

The fundamentals of what I teach was developed by my mentor James Sieckmann. James began his study of the short game while caddying for his brother, Tom Sieckmann, who played the PGA Tour for 17 years with one win. James was fortunate that Tom not only had one of the top short games on Tour but had played regular practice rounds with the short game wizard himself, Seve Ballesteros. James began taking video of his brother, Seve, and many other great short gamers and he studied and measure their techniques. He found that even though all of these short game artists had different body types, athletic ability, and fitness levels, they all shared commonalities. They were artists around the green who shared similar swing sequencing, rhythm and swing plane as well as using the sole of the club properly (i.e. Bounce). These are 4 of keys we stress in chipping and pitching the ball beautifully high and soft.

The technique is only part of the equation. We know and believe that confidence and trust are needed in order to perform at your highest level. Influences of sports psychologists Dr. Bob Rotella, Glen Albaugh and Neale Smith and information from TPI are used often in our teaching.
