Dose anyone here that Mini Golf can help your short game?
I think taht it may be able to help you a little bit by helping you focus because you have to block out all ofthe noises and distraction. You also have to hit it between some hard things.
It depends on what kind of mini golf course it is. If it's flat and has objects in the way, it may help your short game. On the other hand, if it's hilly and has a bunch of wild stuff going on, it's probably more about luck than skill and therefore it probably won't help your short game. Mini golf is a great alternative though if you can't get on a real course.
I guess I've never thought much about it before, but mini golf could help with your putting I suppose. It's usually on artificial turf though so I'm not really sure how helpful it could be if you normally play on real grass.
Still, it's a heck of a lot of fun and can be very humbling if you think you're hot on the golf course. I don't know if I've ever played mini golf with anyone who did really, really well - there's always one hole or more that everyone messes up big time. For me, it's usually the one where you have to get the ball through the windmill or similar building. The windmill is great because the vanes are rotating too so you have to time it just right.
Whether it helps or not, I'm not going to stop playing mini golf Too much fun and always a hit with most everyone.
