Luke Donald Mizuno Masterclass 1

World No.1 says practice those awkward yardages

In the first of his new series of Masterclasses for Mizuno, the world's best player Luke Donald suggests that golfers practice their awkward yardages.

Faced with a 112-yard shot with a pitching wedge to a two level green - he'd normally hit his pitching wedge 125-130 full out - he tries to take a little off the shot be swinging easy with a three-quarter swing.

He's merely 'pleased with the result' as the ball finishes six feet from, the pin - such a perfectionist!

Seems very natural at giving lessons to camera. Will be a good series.

Easily the best role model in the game at the moment in terms of ability. I'll happily take anything he's got to say on board!

Not sure about his taste in shoes though!

Saw him play half a dozen holes up close just after The Ryder Cup. Definitely not short off the tee. Was in 4 bunkers. Was within 2"6 with ever 'out'!

Great stuff from Luke.. natural teaching style. Look fwd to the series, but I hope Mizuno gets two camera guys around the park. Else all the zooming makes it look a bit like a home video.. does not do justice to Luke
