3 DOES THE PIN LO­CA­TION FAVOUR A CUT?

Today's Golfer (UK) - - PLAY BETTER -

Take a look at the flag… and that deep bunker short left of it. The best way into this pin is from the right, and for the righthander that makes driver off the deck more at­trac­tive. That’s be­cause driver de­sign and shaft length make it ba­si­cally im­pos­si­ble to hook the ball; the typ­i­cal shape is a low, slid­ing fade. That means the shot is a much bet­ter op­tion when there is se­ri­ous trou­ble up the left, or when the green wants to be at­tacked from the right.
