Working out where to land the ball on the green not only gives you the best chance of rolling in that birdie putt, but it should also help you to avoid costly bogeys – or worse.

Whether the pin is nestled tight to a bunker or sitting close to a sea of trees at the back of the green, working out where to land the ball is crucial. Give yourself the best chance of making that birdie putt or tapping it in for par and keep those bogeys off your card.
