HSBC Women’s Championship…Great Golf!

It’s the finaBall Stackl round for the HSBC Women’s Championship in Singapore and the field is tough. The final round however, is proving to be a test of the best short game. There have been some amazing shots made and some, well… not so amazing. At the end of the day, missed drives, iron shots coming up a bit short, fairway bunkers hit, punching out from behind a tree equals….”must get up and down.” There have been some clutch putts to save par and some unbelievable pitch shots from just around the greens. And speaking of greens…these greens have huge undulations, breaks and tiers. Distance control is so important with greens like these, and theirs is amazing. Nestling a 30 – 40 footer within inches of the hole not only ensures a solid number on the card, but a confidence boost as they head to the next hole.

My Thoughts –

Watching professional golf on TV not only offers sports entertainment, but the opportunity for a few “take aways” and “lessons learned.”  I can say that the takeaways from this event are short game, short game, short game and short game. I’ve seen several chips tracking to the hole beautifully and finding the bottom of the cup…yes to save par and for a few, to card the birdie.  If you’ve spent anytime this weekend watching the HSBC Championship and the dazzling short game display, you’ll be motivated  to head directly to the short game area the first chance you get and start working on your own dazzling short game.
