What's inside the new issue of Today's Golfer...
How to play golf’s scariest shots!
Why does our game fall apart when we’re faced with a frightening shot? Whether it’s a tee shot with a tight out-of-bounds, an approach to a green surrounded by water or a chip from a bare lie, we’ve all been guilty of producing the exact bad shot we were trying to avoid.
In this issue’s cover feature TrackMan Master Chris Brook explains why the problem is as much physical as it is mental, why our range swing isn’t our on-course swing and provides the answers to help overcome our golfing fears.

Make age just a number…
Once golfers hit 30 years of age we all begin to lose distance… but, as the likes of Bernhard Langer repeatedly prove, there are ways to slow down or even turn back the clock.
