The power of recovery

image1How often do you practise the 80-yard chip and run? Here’s how to recover like the pros and turn a bogey (or worse) into a par.

image3Choose your lowest iron, a four or five iron for most. Next, put the ball back in your stance.

Your weight, and the handle of the club, should be slightly forward of centre to ensure a clean strike on the back of the ball.

From here, don’t be too greedy – the aim is to get the ball back into play and save your par.
