Golf tips: Manage your game

Tips

How to take a sensible approach to your game this winter

BOGEY HOLE

All of us have a hole at our course which
we don’t fancy much. Change your strategy this winter and see it in a different light.

TROUBLE FREE

Take the trouble out of play. If you can’t carry the trouble make sure you can’t reach it. Wet bunkers and rough are no fun in winter.

DRIVE TIME

Learn exactly how far your driver carries the ball and apply that. You should not be interested in distance merely the carry.

THERE ARE OPTIONS

Law doesn’t dictate that the driver has to be hit on every par 4/5. Use the winter to find a ‘go to’ club and build up your confidence.

SHOES

Most shoes on the market come with soft spikes. In the winter I would change to actual spikes which will help with better stability and will help you to hit it further.
