As I research possible golf shots I would like to incorporate into my game, I sometimes come across a shot I kind of have, but need to improve. This is the case with a chipping tip from Rory McIlroy.

Resurgence In Your Golf Game

If you have played golf for any period of time, you will no doubt have entered into a lull in your game.

Then suddenly, your game comes back and you suddenly feel like you can do nothing wrong.

That is a great question, read on to be enlightened!
