Learn to shape your shots

Bubba Watson Shot Shaping

Don't just hit it straight on the range - try mixing things up. 

Making range time more fun and 'golf course' focused while preparing for the season is a key part of ensuring that you maximise your potential.

• Simplify your short game

• A simple grip check

Having the ability to hit different ball flights and knowing your 'go to' shot are both fundamental to you returning low numbers.

Having the ability to hit different ball flights and knowing your 'go to' shot are both fundamental to you returning low numbers.

Rather than solely focusing on technique on the practice ground, put aside a few minutes to pick a set target and attempt to hit different shots.

I would always recommend attempting at least a high fade, low draw, punch shot and high shot.

• Master the 'left to right' shot

• Make better contact with chips

Note the changes you make in your set-up to attempt these shots and be aware of which ones tend to come easier to you.

We will all tend to lean toward at least one shot as a preference.

During the course of a round, where every shot counts and tensions can run high, having a shot you favour, that you know how to execute, and, more importantly, know how it flies and reacts, can prove invaluable.

• Greenside Masterclass

• 3 steps to hit it higher

That knowledge can promote comfort and sell confidence and soon allow you to use that 'go to' shot when it counts.
