How important is really good putting and chipping?

In The 2009 PGA Tour Season, Robert Garrigus was #1 in Driving Distance (312.3 yards). He was also #3 in Greens in Regulation with 70.49% greens hit in regulation. With these two stats, someone hitting it very long and then hitting it on the green, 70% of the time, you would think that they would have a great chance of being the tour money leader if they played in enough events.

Well, Robert Garrigus played in 24 events last year and he finished the year 123rd on the '09 Money List. Not that 123rd on the PGA Tour 2009 Money List is anything to be disappointed in, but this is yet another good example to all of us that we really need to spend equal time or more on our short games. Hopefully in 2010 Robert Garrigus will find some keys he can work on to improve his short game and get his confidence and lower scores on track.
