WORK THE AN­GLE

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

On first glance, this wide fair­way seems to say “hit it any­where.” But a tee shot that’s worked right to left makes this 460-yarder play shorter and eas­ier. A re­ally big drive that reaches the downs­lope with speed can roll all the way to the bot­tom. Now you’ve got a short-iron ap­proach from the only flat spot in the fair­way. Go­ing into this small, three-tiered green, ev­ery yard closer makes a dif­fer­ence. Of course, the risk is com­men­su­rate with the re­ward. Over­cook a drive into the left trees, and you’ll find that the an­gle of the green, along with the bunkers, make it im­pos­si­ble to hold.
