There’s nothing like some healthy, fun competition to develop your skills. That’s why we love the par-18 challenge. It’s the perfect way to make short-game practice time with a friend or family member more fun and more effective.

Place 9 balls at different spots around the green. 3 test your chip and run skills. 3 test your greenside bunker skills. 3 test your short pitch shots. With each skill there’s an easy, medium and hard test. Make sure you putt out competitively and keep score, as this should also put pressure on your putting technique and ability.

How close can YOU get to 18?

Are you hitting it close enough, but not sinking putts? Or are you way off target with your wedges and giving yourself too much to do with the putter? Let’s schedule some time at the practice green together and get you closer to 18.
