Poor and difficult shots are part of the game

2012-12-21 00:00

THERE are occasions during a round when a golfer is undecided as to how to play his next shot. With every kind of golf stroke, the experts tell us that after you have made up your mind what you intend to do, you should picture the shot and commit to it. Every shot should be approached in the same positive manner, from a tricky down-hill two-metre putt and a punch between the trees, to a delicate chip over a bunker.

Amateur golfers with mid to high handicaps hit more poor shots than good ones. The converse happens to low-handicap golfers. Hitting a poor shot happens to everyone and it is obviously disappointing to the player.
