BEST TIPS: HOW TO BREAK 90
Etching two digits rather than three at the end of your round is a big first step.
These simple tips from players and coaches can help you get under the magic 100 mark.
Let's start with that important short game...
CREATE A DEPENDABLE CHIP SHOT
Duncan Woolger, Master pro at World of Golf:
Research tell us a golfer who shoots 99 does not hit many greens in regulation, meaning lots of chipping and pitching.
The key is developing a shot that you can rely on to get you onto the green in one swing from 50 yards away and closer.
Develop one simple motion. Learn to vary the distance that the ball goes by changing the length of the swing.
I would only use a seven iron and a sand iron to keep it simple.
KEEP YOUR HEAD STILL WHEN PUTTING
Keeping your head still is key in putting.
You can practice this by taking your setup with the top of your head against a wall, then hitting some putts.
Place the toe of your putter so it slides gently along the wall - this will tell you your eyes are correctly positioned over your putting line.
Your brain has an amazing ability to judge the spatial relationship and the putting stroke.
Once you've read your putt and get a feel for the distance, the moment you look away from your target and get into your putting setup that visualization starts to deteriorate.
After 30 seconds, you've lost your read, so don't spend more than 20 seconds between your read and starting your stroke.
