Last year you might recall me writing in this column about how important the short game is. Well, as of this writing, the real Tiger Woods had played five rounds of golf this year (four at the Buick Invitational and one at Dubai Desert Classic). He probably has become the closest golfer to master the short game. He certainly didn't strike the ball consistently in those rounds and still he won the Buick and shot 68 in the first round at Dubai, which could have easily been a 73. We might not be Tigers, but with more understanding and practice with the short game we all could certainly see better results.
