In this episode of the Golf in the life podcast, the guest speaker, Mike LaBauve, discusses the short game evaluation tool he uses to help his students set goals to improve their scores. Tour players often find it too easy and set additional challenges to deepen the game.
Setting goals for the short game score helps golfers reduce their handicap, and the short game course takes around 12 minutes to complete. The speaker suggests that golfers should practice regularly and compete with each other to improve their scores. His students have achieved success by competing against each other on the short game course almost daily. They emphasize the importance of putting in the reps to improve your short game and maximize your scoring potential on the course.
Overall, this episode provides valuable insights into how golf instructors can use short game evaluation to help their students improve their game and shoot lower scores.
