Thomas Pieters gets pitching lesson from Alex Noren, immediately turns into short-game wizard

January 18, 2023

It's not unusual to see the best golfers in the world turn to each other when they need help with their games. After all, they're around each other all the time, and, well, they're the best golfers in the world for a reason. Heck, how many times have we seen Tiger freaking Woods get putting lessons from Steve Stricker through the years?

So it would make sense that a golfer looking for some short-game advice would turn to Alex Noren. Even a fellow Ryder Cupper like Thomas Pieters. Noren is a 10-time DP World Tour winner, and he's capable of pulling off shots around the green that would even impress Phil Mickelson. Absolutely filthy shots like this:

Ahead of this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, Pieters approached Noren for some pitching tips. And boy, is he thankful that he did.

Check it out as Noren offers some hands-on instruction, then watches as Pieters instantly turns into a short-game wizard by hitting a pitch to within inches of the hole. You love to see golf tips click right away like this:

Pretty snazzy. And pretty kind of Noren to help out a competitor on the eve of the first big DP World Tour event of the year. If Noren ever needs help on snapping golf clubs, there's a big Belgian who owes him now.
