Leave your­self a com­fort­able third

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

If you’re think­ing about go­ing over the wa­ter in two you have to be hon­est about your chances of hit­ting that shot suc­cess­fully. If you’re not con­fi­dent of clear­ing it at least five times out of 10 then you should def­i­nitely lay up. If your chances are higher, it’s about bal­anc­ing the risk and re­ward with the sit­u­a­tion that you’re in. Gen­er­ally speak­ing, I like to lay up as close as pos­si­ble but half shots can be dif­fi­cult for the av­er­age golfer so I’d sug­gest leav­ing a full shot in if that’s what you’re more com­fort­able with.
