GROOVE YOUR FEELS

Spend the first 10 min­utes on any prac­tice drills, swing thoughts or feels you are try­ing to build into your swing. It’s best to use a short­ish iron and an align­ment aid like a club­shaft or a cane to en­sure you are hit­ting shots from a square/neu­tral ad­dress po­si­tion.

TEST YOUR AC­CU­RACY

For the next five min­utes, take a longer club and vi­su­alise the shot you want to play in your mind’s eye be­fore hit­ting it. Choose dif­fer­ent tar­gets and hit, say, 10 balls. Set a re­al­is­tic tar­get for suc­cess­ful out­comes and try to beat it .

CHIP AND PUTT

Spend the fi­nal 15 min­utes work­ing on short-range chip shots and long-range putting. From fairly close to the chip­ping green hit a 7iron to three or four holes. Re­peat the process with each club un­til you reach your lob wedge. To en­hance your long-range feel, find three or four 30-foot­ers and aim to leave your­self a spe­cific to­tal re­main­der dis­tance.
