32 GET AN OPTIMUM APPROACH YARDAGE
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.
