Rutgers focuses on accuracy, precision of short game

Golf is a game of precision and accuracy, and no part of a golfer’s game tests this more than in short game. “I honestly think that short game is one of the hardest aspects of golf, because you have to be so accurate in every part of the short game,” said sophomore Christina Paulsen. The short game consists of putting, chipping, bunker shots, flop shots and a pitch shot, among other facets, to put golfers in the best possible position to get the ball in the hole.

Freshman Taylor Clark said Rutgers’ VISION54 program has helped the Knights improve all-around. The program allows RU to practice indoors.
