1. Keep the ball on the ground around the greens.

To improve your score quickly, prioritise low-risk short game shots. Opt for putting whenever possible, followed by chipping when a putt isn’t feasible. Reserve pitching for situations where chipping isn’t viable, as it carries higher risk. Following this order minimises errors and keeps your scorecard looking strong.


2. Know when to play defence

In golf, errors are inevitable. Knowing when to be aggressive and when to play it safe is key. Avoid attempting heroic shots to salvage your score; instead, prioritise placement for an easier follow-up. While the hero shot may be tempting, it often results in costly mistakes on the scorecard.


3. Have a favourite club (and make good use of it)

When you find yourself struggling with your golf game, it’s essential to return to your favourite club. Practise a variety of shots with it, ranging from bump and runs to half-club shots, to ensure versatility. By leaning on your favourite club, you’ll not only boost your confidence but also have a reliable option when things don’t go as planned on the course.


4. Lean on Technology

Using technology for course navigation can significantly enhance your golf game. While it’s not necessary for every shot, having yardage guidance, especially to hazards or bunkers, can be advantageous, helping you save strokes on crucial shots.


5. Fine tune your short game

With the array of wedges available today, selecting the right ones can be daunting. Many pro golfers carry multiple wedges, each serving a specific purpose. However, mastering distance control can be challenging, especially with limited practice time. Regularly calibrating your short game, noting distances for each club, can greatly aid your performance. It’s crucial to understand the purpose and distance capabilities of each club to be prepared for every situation on the course.
