26 Play smart
How to assess all the options to decide if to go for a par 5 in two.
Even good drives can give you a strategy dilemma. Getting a good one away on a par 5 can bring the green within range, offering the potential for an heroic second shot and an eagle putt; but typically, the greens on short par 5s are
designed to receive a short pitch, are well protected and do not always reward such bravery. You will make your smartest play when you base your decision on these five factors. Take them into account before pulling the trigger.
