Tip no. 26 - Course Management
with Pachesham Golf Academy

Good golf is not just about hitting good shots. If you can't think your way round the course, you won't score well. Most handicap golfers could save several shots a round if they would learn to play the percentages and not attempt the impossible.

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

• On a tight hole where the fairway narrows or bunkers loom, always play percentage golf

• More birdies will come with an 8 iron from the middle of the fairway than a wedge from the rough - so think about a three wood or a five wood from the tee

• Try not to play a shot that you have not practiced, and if in doubt, always play safe

• Tee the ball up as close to the trouble as you can - this way you are always hitting away from the danger.

• Remember - in golf, there is always a good place to hit a bad shot on every hole!

• A 'golf playing lesson' with your pro can also help identify your strengths and weaknesses and help with course management
