THE BACK­GROUND

The Cut - - PLAY BETTER GOLF -

One thing I’ve learnt is that un­der­stand­ing course man­age­ment is es­sen­tial to squeez­ing the most out of your scor­ing po­ten­tial, re­gard­less of whether your hand­i­cap is 36 or 3.6. How­ever, for the club golfer it’s prob­a­bly the least utilised qual­ity in the whole game.

Per­son­ally, I’ve never been a par­tic­u­larly ag­gres­sive player. I don’t gam­ble un­less the odds are in my favour, and know­ing when to take a risk is a cru­cial part of avoid­ing big num­bers. I’ve al­ways felt like my course man­age­ment was one of the strong­est parts of my game, and when you know what to look for, it can be re­ally easy.
