Luke Donald Short Game Tips
Seven-time European Tour winner Luke Donald gives his thoughts on the significance of both technique and feel in golf to the Golf Monthly team.
Donald discusses the importance of understanding correct technique to generate feel. Luke’s wedge set up also plays a crucial role in teh quality of his short game.
The Buckinghamshire born golfer also addresses the issue of landing spots and how he uses technique, particularly the position of the golf club, to get a feel for the game and how to play winning shots. The relationship between feel and technique is crucial as players who are looking to improve their mechanics often lose the natural feel that was at the heart of their game. We asked Luke Donald how he manages this balance.
Donald is renowned as one of the best pitchers in the world of golf, and in part this is down to his superb fundamentals like a perfectly neutral grip.
He reached the summit of the world game in 2011 and became the first player to win the European and PGA Tour Money Lists in the same season that year. His success was born of a fantastic short game, he was solid from inside 6 feet and posessed an electric short game.
