Don't short side yourself
The easiest way to consistently shoot your lowest score is to actively avoid being short sided. The only time that I think it is acceptable to be short sided is when you have to win the remaining holes to not lose and you go for a pin and end up getting short sided.
Outside of that, I think that you should always ensure that you will have some green to work with if you happen to miss the green.
If this is the first time that you have heard the term "short-sided" then I can explain it. As you can see in the photo above, that is when you hit the ball comes to rest where there is very little green between the the pin and the edge of the green. This golf shot is much more difficult and requires much more skill and ability. In order to put ourself in the best position to succeed, we are going to avoid this situation as much as possible within a given round.
So how do we avoid the dreaded short side?
The image above depicts the two ways in which one can approach aiming at a pin.
The image on the left is if the player aimed at the flag. If they player were to pull the golf shot, they would indeed have short sided themselves. There is a 33% change by aiming at the flag that you short side yourself on your next shot.
The image on the right would be if you aimed away from the pin/short side of the green. In the image the player is aiming at the right side of the green. When aimed there, if he hits it where he was aimed, he will be on the right side of the green, easy 2-putt at worst. If he pulls it, he will actually have hit a really good shot and have a short putt for birdie. If the player pushes it, he will have an easy up/down with a lot of green to work with.
Change the way you aim and you will increase your consistency, thus shooting lower scores.
Easiest place to get up/down from
This goes hand in hand with don't short side yourself but focuses more on being intentional on where you want the ball to go and how you are going to get it there.
This is where knowing YOUR game is imperative!
If you know that you have no chance getting up and down out of the left green side bunker and also know that you are the best at putting from off the green, just hit it right and take the bunker completely out of play.
GolfWright is all about taking the stress free 6 vs taking the blood pressure raising 8.
Where is the one place I can't be?
No matter what golf course you are playing, there is going to be a spot on almost every golf hole that is deflating to your morale.
Whether that is a bunker that you will most definitely not get out of on your first attempt or a spot where if you don't hit a perfect chip, your ball will roll 40 yards off the green.
Spots like this exist no matter where you are. Just like with hazards, we have to be aware of these spots, accept them, know that there is a chance that we could end up in this spot, and then back to focusing on what we are trying to accomplish.
What we are trying to learn is that as we begin to accept the things that can hurt our score the most, the fewer they begin to affect us.
This aspect is pretty self-explanatory but you need to be aware and accept all hazards that are around you.
Once you have accepted that the hazards are there and accepted that there is a chance that you could go in, the hazard loses all of its power.
Accept the negatives and then proceed with dominating the positives. You will find yourself using the hazards as aiming points more often as well as just being more relaxed when you are surrounded by hazards.
