Scottie Scheffler was “prepared” for success in Sunday singles match against Jon Rahm
Scottie Scheffler started his singles match on Sunday with four consecutive birdies. Scheduled to face the world No. 1 player, he knew he would need a special effort to win his match. The strength of Scheffler’s game begins with its configuration. He is tall and strong like so many modern golfers, and in this characteristic position of skill he holds his club as if it were an extension of his arms.
Scottie’s iron precision stems from his athletic posture. Watch as his arms hang freely below his shoulders. He does not reach the club and his hands are not too close to his legs. In this starting position, there is an angle formed between the dangling hands and the club shaft. This angle is very important.
If you want to play like Scheffler did to defeat Jon Rahm, then get into Scottie’s setup. Pay attention to how you feel when holding the club and the angle between you and the tool. Then, as you hit, recreate the same angle between you and the club shaft. Don’t let it go up or down. Keeping it the same will help you throw the ball on the correct line and hit it with sharpness.
The reason Scottie Scheffler has such a complete game is that a great setup like this can help in all areas. Chipping through driving, pitching to putting, place your arms in a position where they can sway quickly and consistently. With smooth movement, your speed through the ball will increase. Which, combined with a more solid shot, also allows you to hit serious golf goals just like Scheffler.
