CHANGE YOUR SCORECARD

Carl Watts, former European Tour player and Mannings Heath pro:

Take the scorecard and change the par of a course to what you need to break 100.

For instance, the first hole may be a par-4, but you're aiming to make six.

This is a big psychological boost. 

SPOT, THEN CLUB

Pick a spot on the front of the green, then work out the club.

Not the other way around.

9/10 PUTTING

Ask yourself, where would nine out of 10 players go on this putt?

For instance, on a downhill putt, the majority go long, on a left-to-right putt they miss left, and so on.

Factor this into your read. 

CHIP WITH YOUR HYBRID OR 3-WOOD

Jonathan Yarwood, Tour coach and director of performance at Bishops Gate Golf Academy in Orlando:

Lowering high scores is about stopping the big numbers caused by poorly executed basic shots.

So many higher handicap players duff chips which often go unnoticed but massively affect the score.

Fewer chips here and there will shave scores quickly. 

A simple, non-technical way to chip is to use your hybrid. Simply grip down on it, stand like a putter, then make a putting stroke.

It's impossible to mis-hit as the wide sole skids across the turf. A no-brainer.
