Who'd like to see more matchplay?
How refreshing it was to see some matchplay golf on the box this weekend. The Paul Lawrie event in Aberdeen may not have attracted the strongest field, but it was great to see this form of the game make a return to our screens.
Strokeplay golf can get a little tiresome and we're sure many of you relish a bit of matchplay now and again, especially if you're struggling in the medals. Matchplay requires an entirely different mind-set; you're required to react to your opponent's successes and failures. You may have seen players at the weekend miss the odd short putt or two and there can be a good few mind games going on.
It makes us think of that classic matchplay situation:
Concede short putts early in the round, and stop conceding them later on at a more critical juncture
Inconsistent putters may struggle with this and give you an important edge. So, if you've got a matchplay tie coming up, then make sure you put the time in on the putting green and don't be caught out by this old trick. If your putting isn't up to scratch why not get in touch to book a putting lesson? Well done to Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnat, who managed to hold his nerve, holing out from four feet for victory.
