. . . OR PLAY SMART

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

If you’ve se­lected a hy­brid or long iron off the tee, it doesn’t mean you can take a men­tal va­ca­tion. Play this lay-up with pre­ci­sion, and you’ll have a bet­ter chance to hit your sec­ond shot close. Con­sid­er­ing wind and turf speed, you need 180 to 190 me­tres. Short of that, and your view of the flag will be ob­scured by a rise in the fair­way. Long, and your ball could scam­per into an awk­ward lie. Un­like the glory shot, here the miss is left – in the bunker beats the scrub on the right.
