The best players in the world look at tricky on-course situations as a test of skill and a chance to show exactly how good they are.

Take Seve for example. He adored being the centre of attention and focused every ounce of energy into somehow escaping with his score intact.

If your ball nestles in deep grass or bunkers around the green, take time to map out the perfect escape. Consider not only your lie, but the undulations on the green and the position of the flag.

Relish the opportunity to take on a high-tariff escape and show off your touch and imagination.

A more positive outlook will help you to deliver a decisive stroke.
