WHEN you face a very testing shot - for example, over water to a small green, with no bail out - the most important thing to remember is to try and keep the rhythm of your swing. Most people will lose their nice smooth rhythm and snatch at the shot, which will lead to disaster. What I would recommend is that you just try to keep your take away slow and smooth. This will set the tempo for the whole swing and allow you to hit the shot that you want more often. Give it a go the next time you have a pressure shot.Mike WilsonProfessionalRoyal North Devon GC(01237) 477598
