LAY­ING UP SHORT

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

This is the safest spot to aim a drive. By se­lect­ing a shorter club off the tee, you play to the widest sec­tion of the fair­way. The trade-off for this less de­mand­ing tee shot is a longer ap­proach. But if you feel con­fi­dent with your irons, the green is nice and wide from this an­gle. And you won’t have to carry any green­side bunkers. Smart match-play golfers don’t treat ev­ery hole like it’s a must­win. Some­times play­ing for a prob­a­ble half is okay. They know there are other holes on the course that will suit them bet­ter.
