Published:

Not only will your free tees and ball marker with this month’s copy of Today’s Golfer come in handy on the course, they can also help you play better golf!

We’ve compiled a series of exclusive video tips and drills using your free gifts to fix common faults and help you hit the ball longer and straighter, as well as sharpening your short game.

Good chippers of the ball utilize the bounce on the bottom of their wedges to create a crisp contact and generate backspin. This actually requires a relatively shallow angle of attack to prevent the leading edge digging down into the turf, which reduces your margin for error.
