We can all learn from Rory
To borrow a phrase from horseracing, Rory "won at a canter" at the Dubai Desert Classic on the weekend. When he's in this kind of form you just can't see anyone challenging him; it's fantastic to watch. Seeing the world number one in full flow is also a great opportunity for us to sit back in the armchair and learn a thing or two…
Aside from his ability to hit huge drives and laser-like iron shots, there are many other aspects of Rory's game to admire. He's actually ranked tied third for scrambling on the European Tour and when you combine that with his awesome driving, it's no wonder it all adds up to a pretty healthy stroke average of 67.
Before the season really gets underway, spend some time on your short game. Rory could be forgiven for neglecting this aspect of his game given he's constantly booming drives straight down the middle of the fairway leaving a wedge in his hands, but clearly he doesn't. So, put some balls down in tricky positions and work hard on getting up and down. It's amazing how much confidence it can give the rest of your game if you know you're going to be able to get up and down nine times out of ten.
