PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTH

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

With a cup cut here, this is the long­est the hole can play. It’ll be 172 me­tres from the back tees and about 136 from the whites. If you feel you’ve got the tra­jec­tory that can hit and hold this back­left por­tion of the putting sur­face, you face a de­ci­sion. If your chip­ping and sand game are strong, you might go at this flag. If lag putting is your tal­ent, the right half of the green is your play. It’s a more man­age­able putt ne­go­ti­at­ing the ridge in this di­rec­tion, and you keep your ball away from that deep mid­dle bunker.
