SHELVE THE DRIVER

Kristian Baker, Head of Instruction at Wentworth Club:

If you're not consistent with your driver, consider teeing off with a 3-wood on occasion.

This is especially relevant on tough driving holes.

PLAY THE RIGHT BALL

Check the ball you're using is the best for you, not just the best on the market. 

Talk to a PGA pro at your local store if you are unsure as to which ball will benefit your game. 

FOCUS ON KEEPING YOUR CENTRE

Ian Clark, Advanced Fellow PGA, master pro at World of Golf:

Higher handicap players hit the ball fat and thin because they sway during the swing.

Focus on keeping your head steady so you will stay centred over the ball, allowing you to control the bottom of the swing.

PRACTICE PUTTING FROM 4 FEET AND 30 FEET

Guy Maxwell, director of golf at Assoufid, Marrakech:

The long putts teach you feel and by becoming a better finisher you will save loads of shots typically squandered by players in this bracket.

Don’t spend time practising middle distance putts as these are easy to two putt.

KNOW YOUR ABILITY

That tricky shot you are trying to execute might come off once in 10 attempts.

Be more strategic. Don’t try to overachieve.

Take your medicine. It is better to lose one shot than three or four trying to pull off a miracle.
