High handicappers often make the same mistakes. They often play with a crippling slice, spend five strikes in the bunker, or blade it through the green when chipping.

We’ve collated 10 tips that will eliminate these common errors, and you should see your scores shoot down when you put them in play.

Bump and run

There's a lot less that can go wrong, and it's an easy shot to  pull out the bag once you get the hang of it.

 

Stop slicing your driver

 

One of the most common sights on the golf course - a ball flying to the right off the tee.

Learn to cut out that slice in seconds...

 

Learn to play under pressure

Learn to master the mental side of golf, and your scores will flourish.
