Your game can improve in just SEVEN mins

2016 02 Collage

We all want to see a dramatic improvement in our short games and our ability to read greens and the answer, it seems, takes just seven minutes.

Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Padraig Harrington and Retief Goosen all vouch for this, as might Rory McIlroy, who is the latest in a long list of top golfers to have had laser eye surgery.

The Northern Irishman underwent the procedure after ending his 2015 in style by winning the European Tour Race to Dubai, and we all found out after he posted this picture on his Instagram page.

But few people know what is actually involved in what is one of the most common elective surgical procedures in the world, with Optical Express releasing a video to show what Rory, Tiger and millions of others around the world undergo in the process, which is complete in less than seven minutes with results instant.

“Good eye skills are crucial to being a good golfer,” Dr Steve Schallhorn said. “Hand-eye coordination, peripheral awareness and depth perception are all dependent on good eyesight and essential for improving your game.

“From tee to green golfers use their full range of vision, so being short or long-sighted can dramatically hinder a players’ game. Most golfers that have surgery see the dramatic improvement in their short game and ability to read greens.

“Golfers of all levels, whether they are candidates for laser eye surgery or not, can improve their game by having regular eye tests and ensuring their eyes are in good condition.”
