WHEN I LOOK AT A GOLF COURSE, I DON’T SEE TROUBLE. I SEE OPPORTUNITIES.
It might have tight fairways or heavy rough or be super long – that’s ne by me. On tour, we expect a tough test. But I’m not sure everyone has that kind of mind-set. I think a lot of golfers see a hard hole or stretch of holes, and instead of revving up, they get defensive. Before they even put their tee in the ground, they’re thinking about avoiding double bogey, not how they can par this sucker.Assuming you’re playing from the right tees for your skill level, there’s no reason to let any hole routinely beat you up. I’ll show you how to turn the tables on tough holes, from tee to green, so you can become the bully. PHOTOGRAPHS J D CUBAN
