‘Play the percentages on shorter par 4s’
It’s always tempting to hit driver and get the ball as close as you can to the green on shorter par 4s but that isn’t always your best chance of making birdie or par, especially when there’s more danger around your driver landing area. The benefit of a shorter par 4 is you can aim for the wider part of the fairway with less club and still leave a short iron to the green. Sometimes you have to accept that you’ll have a little longer shot in if that makes it easier to hit the fairway with your tee shot. There are times when I’d rather have 130 yards from the fairway than 100 yards out of the rough or a sand trap because you can control the ball better from the fairway.
