If you’ve watched our latest vlog on YouTube and have been a fan of ‘The Muppets” tours over the last few years, you’ll know that YGTRory is self-confessed the ‘world’s most inconsistent golfer’. He plays off of 8 but can have a little trouble with his chipping, often thinning shots around the green.

Now, many of you are experiencing having to teach your children from home to ensure they stay up to date on school work, so we thought in the spirit of this, we’d ask Mark Crossfield to Home School Rory, to give him some pointers on chipping, to come out of this lockdown a better short game player.

For extra golf tuition tips from local Pros, keep an eye on the hashtag #YGTGolfTipOfTheDay on twitter, to soak up as many golf lessons as possible during the lockdown, to practice at home or in the garden.

Is it possible to get a few more yards out of your driver? Prior to his longest drive competition against former Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley, Rory got a custom club fit at the TaylorMade Performance centre at Quinta Do Lago.


If you’re a bit of a newbie to the game and you’re not sure on all the lingo, read up on commonly used terms and phrases in our A-Z of Golfing Terms.

We’re all missing the game immensely and craving a round with our friends, but waiting patiently until it’s safe to play, perhaps in a few months time. Until then, keep practicing at home, take the time to improve your golf swing and stay safe.
We hope to see you on the fairways soon.

I grew up with the game, a competitive younger sister of a golf mad brother. Dabbled in greenkeeping, now managing content at Your Golf Travel. Still can't putt.
