32 GET AN OP­TI­MUM AP­PROACH YARDAGE

Golf Australia - - GREAT SUMMER GOLF -

What dis­tance in­side 120 me­tres are you most com­fort­able and con­sis­tent hit­ting? With just a lit­tle prac­tice, you can turn that shot into a real strength this sum­mer. An op­ti­mal ap­proach dis­tance can be played to from a wide va­ri­ety of sit­u­a­tions, whether get­ting back into po­si­tion when in trou­ble or lay­ing up on par-5s or even longer par-4s. Rather than just try­ing to get as close to the green as pos­si­ble, you will start giv­ing a lit­tle more thought to where you want to be pitch­ing in from. This stops you try­ing to force a shot with a long club or tak­ing on the im­prob­a­ble re­cov­ery.
