Perfect your putting
Need some tips to improve your game? Take note of these putting pointers from the pros:
Analyse the obstacles before tackling the hole. This may sound obvious, but some holes require a clear strategy if you want to achieve a par or better.
Apply the basics of golfing: perfect your stance, firm your grip and practise your stroke before commiting to the first putt.
Break up the hole into sections. If the hole has a par 4, work out three to four shots to get you to the finishing flag.
Remember, putt-putt golf tests the precision with which you can hit the ball from a short distance. Avoid intense hitting on shorter holes but don’t be afraid to put some power behind your putt at the longer holes.
