How to choose the right shot for the moment
My rules for playing short par 4s.
The most popular format among weekend golfers is match play.You can play head to head (singles) or with a partner (better ball). It’s a kinder game than stroke play because big numbers are less disastrous, and it’s fun because there’s another layer of strategy. In addition to understanding how your skills t a particular hole, you weigh what the other player or team is capable of.
Match play gets exciting when there are two or three ways to play a hole. More permutations exist for your shot to a ect your opponent’s next move. On the fourth tee at Old Corkscrew Golf Club, a course I designed in Estero, Florida, you have three choices. How the match stands might factor into your decision, but most important is to lean on your strengths. I’d bet you have a hole like this one where you play.
