Have we inspired those of you shooting above 90, to target 89 or less on most every occasion this year? How much better is 16 bogeys and 2 pars (on any Par 72), than what you have to live with if you’re shooting 95 or higher? So our final tip:
How many 3-putts do you have to suffer each round? Most inexperienced golfers’ cards will reveal 3 or more 3-putts each round. Remove those and you’re 3 shots (or more) closer to 89. So here are two suggestions:

Every golfer can become a wizard of the greens. There are skills that everyone can learn. You’ll be amazed the impact it will have on your scorecard.
