This podcast and all of our podcasts are recorded live, with audience interaction invited and welcomed.    To register for the next LIVE event, please visit:   This special RedZone edition of the Birdie Brigade podcast focuses on 100 yards and in. We will demonstrate 4 drills and give you a challenge you can perform to track your progress. We’ll even help you reduce pressure on the course with our special Pressure Cooker game.   In fact, every podcast we do issues a clear challenge to help you lower your score and work on your weaknesses. We’ll give you actionable drills, pressure tests, and games so practicing becomes more fun…not to mention, more time efficient.   If you’ve struggled to break through 100, 90 and even 80 - today’s special RedZone edition will get you back on track and create shorter putts for you.   Here’s a list of the drills in this podcast: The Step Drill aka Spieth Drill (14:40 mark) The Two Ball Drill (34:26 mark) The Book Drill (36:29 mark) The Belly Button Drill (39:20 mark) And, here’s how to put the lesson from today into ACTION…   First, head to the range and practice the two ball, book and belly button drill...   Second, work on the Step Drill and write down your yardages on the assessment sheet below:     The empty boxes are where you can add a checkmark if you hit that exact distance. If you miss, place a minute (-) in the box. Your goal is to get more checks the next time you do this drill. This is a way to keep score and create a tiny bit of pressure.   Third, play the pressure cooker game and keep score. This one is more practical in terms of seeing if your step drill is helping you accurately choose the right swing and club for a particular distance.    Here’s how it works: Play 9 holes from a variety of RedZone distances… for example, pick 30 yards, 60 yards, and 90 yards as target distances.  Play them randomly a total of 9 holes.  Keep score for each hole using the following scoring system using spot landing and not factoring in roll: 21 feet outside target pin = 0 points 16-20 feet = 1 point 11-15 feet = 2 points 6-10 feet = 3 points 1-5 feet = 4 points Hit the flagstick = 5 points And here’s how to get the most from this weeks lesson plan...   Challenge of the Week Go out this week and practice a total of 3 times. Follow the layout above. End every session with the Pressure Cooker.   Set a Pressure Cooker and Step Drill benchmark your first practice session and aim to beat these during every other practice session.   I am convinced if you put in 30 minutes per session over three practice sessions, you can lower your score immediately. And I know for a fact you’ll be making more pars and looking at more birdies.   Christian Henning
