THE CRIT­I­CAL DRIVE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Be Clutch -

▶ When you can’t af­ford to miss the fair­way, your in­stinct might be to play con­ser­va­tive with a 3-wood or hy­brid and bunt the ball out there. That’s a bad idea. It’s also a bad idea to grab your driver and try to crush one. Re­mem­ber what I said about be­ing your­self – that’s help­ful here. Hit your driver like you’re on your favourite par 4 at your home course. The swing thought that works great for me in pres­sure sit­u­a­tions is, Com­plete the back­swing. Be­ing ner­vous can make you cut your back­swing short and rush the club down to the ball. Take your time get­ting the club back, and don’t start the down­swing un­til your body feels fully wound.
