TAKE DEAD AIM

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best Strategy By Jack Nicklaus -

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.
