Here are a few things you can focus on when practising in the mirror:

  • Work on your grip setup

2. Work On Your Balance


Staying balanced throughout the swing is hugely important to your performance. By being able to keep a solid base throughout the swing will help with your consistency and your control. When you want the tour pro's play, their balance is perfect every single shot.

Here are a few things you can focus on when practising your balance:

  • Single-Leg Balance

  • Balance Pad (Or Board)

3. Practice Your Putting


Are those three-putts keeping your scores high? Putting is such a vital part of the game and can make the difference between a good round and a great round. This is a skill that you can focus on at home. You can work on many things from distance control to accuracy.

By spending the time now practising your putting stroke, you will feel much more confident over that vital 5 foot put to secure the par.

Here are a few things you can focus on when practising your balance:

  • Distance control to a stick note

  • Accuracy to a mug

  • Work on your putting technique


4. Short Chipping Practice


Another vital part of golf is chipping around the greens, becoming deadly accurate from a short distance you can lower your scores very quickly. You can practice this at home using a carpet or rug. One great tip is to make a small motion, focus on contact and narrow your stance.

Here are a few things you can focus on when practising your chipping:

  • If you have a garden put a bucket 10 yards away

  • Indoor chipping with foam golf balls
