AT­TACK­ING FROM THE TEE

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

If the fair­way gets skinny in a hurry, re­alise you might have to be twice as ac­cu­rate if you try to squeeze in a driver. Maybe you’ve been split­ting fair­ways all day and feel up to do­ing it again. Okay, but you’d bet­ter think long and hard if it’s worth bring­ing bo­gey into play. That said, if you’re strug­gling with your longer ap­proach clubs, as­sum­ing ex­tra risk off the tee to get a short iron in your hands makes sense. Dry turf could be an­other tip­ping point. This green is small, so if it’s re­ally firm, I want the short­est ap­proach pos­si­ble.
