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.

Chip shots require the clubhead to be descending into the ball to achieve a crisp strike. The way to do this is to ensure the butt of the club leads into impact ahead of the clubhead, creating forward lean in the shaft.

As a drill, try placing a tee in the butt end of your club and aim to keep it pointing to in front of your body throughout the shot, as John Letters Golf Academy Pro Tom Denby explains in this golf video tip.
