A card full of 3's, 4's and 5's won't hurt you but a double bogey will ruin your whole day. So play safe, don't go for the hero shot out of the woods, just pitch it back onto the fairway and take your bogey. Playing conservative golf and exercising damage control will always keep your scores respectable.
The best way to putt is to just "hit and listen". By doing this, you will keep your head down, and you won't see the ball miss (which is psychologically damaging). You also learn to focus on the stroke and let the ball do what it wants - you let go of the outcome.
Never let the club head pass the hands on chip shots. This one tip will remove any "flubbed" shots from your golfing life. In the world of professional golf, this method is know as "hinge and hold" and is used by world-class players such as Phil Mickelson.
Many golfers put too much emphasis on the arms and the club during the swing. The truth is, once you get a solid body rotation, the clubs and arms will take care of themselves. Get your set up and your body motion right and you will have a professional level swing.
You will play better when you enjoy the game. Always keep in perspective that you are not playing golf for a living. Focus on taking in the great nature around you on the course and enjoy the challenge of the game. No matter what your score, you can't lose if you play with a smile on your face.
Keep these quick tips with you the next time you go out to play - you could even write them on a little piece of paper that you carry in your back pocket. When you pull out the scorecard, you will be reminded of these "golf hacks".
