Your Short Game Solution

Since James Sieckmann first revealed his short-game methods two decades ago, he has amassed a cult like following of more than seventy PGA and LPGA Tour disciples and has been dubbed the short-game guru to the pros (GOLF Magazine). Using his system, several of Sieckmann’s students have become some of the best short-game players of the modern era. A two-time winner on the PGA Tour jumped 117 spots in the Sand Save rankings in one season; another client quickly jumped 81 spots in Scrambling percentage.


The benefits of a good short game are undisputed. Unfortunately, players at all levels fail to develop effective short-game skills because instructors teach the exact opposite of the correct technique. Sieckmann studied the greatest short-game players in recent memory including Seve Ballesteros, Corey Pavin, and Raymond Floyd to develop a proven and pragmatic way to learn, practice, and perform with each wedge in every situation. His unique observations, which were later verified by motion capture technology, work equally well for amateurs and pros.

These schools are now being delivered in Australia  by Jame's Australasian representative Matthew Tipper and fellow PGA Professional Linford Jacquelin.

Matthew Tipper

In late 2016 Matthew reached out to the Worlds leading Short Game Instructor James Sieckmann to discuss an opportunity of representing him in Europe and Asia as his Tour Coach. Having followed James Sieckmann for many years, Matthew quickly realised that James proven methods and ideas of the short game were aligned with his own and after many discussions and meetings Matthew was honoured to accept the role representing James in Europe and Asia. Matthew has spent numerous hours with James and his tour players and at private schools assisting and running classes in Your Short Game Solution.

Matthew is K-Vest Level 3 certified as well as Trackman Level 2 and the Eastern European representative for AimPoint. Matthew works with all levels of players throughout Europe and Asia and directly assists James Sieckmann in the USA.
