With the lingering winter season, now is a great time to work on contact – the ability to stand over an iron shot and know it’s going to hit the green. Working on this skill can help to improve your distance and direction and, most importantly, your consistency from shot to shot.

Here is one quick and easy tip you can use to practice during this cool season. Be sure to have a roll of painter’s tape handy – essential for practicing this skill to improve your contact.

Your body begins to ache very easy, especially in your legs and feet. You must pace yourself by moving and walking slowly in order to maintain energy levels and lengthen the experience.
