CHALLENGE THE GREEN
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.
