HAVE A GO-TO SHOT.
As a better player, you need a shot you can rely on under pressure. Develop a knockdown. Choke down an inch or two, stand a little closer to the ball, and play it back. For the swing, remember this: To hit it low, finish low.
PIMP YOUR DRIVER.
Checking the specs of your driver – and possibly updating them – can make a huge difference. Get on a launch moni- tor periodically. Make sure you’re maximising energy transfer and neutralising your mishits (which are probably of one variety by now) as well as you can.
GO TO THE LOW SIDE.
Make sure to read your putts looking into the slope, as if you were reading a book that’s tipped towards you. This is the best way to see the contours, so you can assess the severity of the break.
LEARN TO LET GO.
All the thinking you’ve done about your game has put you at the brink of breaking 80. Now you’ve got to do one more thing: Stop thinking so much! Pick your club, clear your mind and visualise your shot going at the target. You’re ready.
