LAYING UP SHORT
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.
