CHAL­LENGE THE GREEN

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

Are you a long driver? If so, this could be an op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply pres­sure in a match. If the wind di­rec­tion is favourable and the tees aren’t set too far back – the card reads 283 me­tres from the whites – con­di­tions might be right to drive the green. Even if your ball doesn’t quite get there, leav­ing a short pitch from the fair­way is a strong po­si­tion. It might com­pel your op­po­nent to try to match it with an ag­gres­sive shot that he’s not en­tirely com­fort­able with. If you’re hit­ting sec­ond off the tee, be ready to put your driver away if your op­po­nent tries this and rinses one.
