John Watson, Adlington Golf Club

Golf instruction for all levels which will help you play some better golf and lower your scores.


Line up several golf balls and set yourself up at the first one.

Hit that first ball about a putter’s length out in fron of you.

Set up again at the second golf ball and do the same again but aim this one roughly a putter’s length past the initial ball.

Do the same again for the rest of the golf balls, aiming each one a little further out than the last one.
