Hey everyone thanks for all the replies from my first thread it was great seeing all the ideas and took all that advice on board.

To recap I'm a 5 handicap and have been since I was 17, however I am 22 now and have not lowered my handicap since which is very frustrating (I took a break from golf for 3 years and got back playing in April). I am very pleased with my driving, ball striking and putting, however chipping, pitching, lob shots and bunker play just never seem to improve and I do spend most of my practice time on these weaknesses I do not neglect them but I am becoming desperate because I know it is really holding me me back from becoming a better player. When I work on my short game only my putting seems to improve and not the rest, I duff a lot of my chips etc which cost me shots in my round. Any advice or drills in this area would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
