TAKE DEAD AIM
If the cup is here, thank the superintendent. Here’s a rare opportunity when the play is directly at the flag. But be careful of what’s probably your well-conditioned instinct to cheat your aim a little left of this pin position. A shot that pitches close to the middle of this green is dangerous. If the ball runs or has any draw spin, it’s going to feed over the ridge to the back-left portion of the green. Now you’ve got the toughest two-putt on the hole. In this situation, the best miss is short in the neck of the fairway, where you can still make par with a good chip.
