Lay up or go for it (Par 5) - Page 3

post #37 of 43

Honestly it's not a choice I have to make often. Of all the courses I frequent there are only three par 5's I can reach in two because I don't carry a driver. If I can't get there with two 3w it's not happening. Though I typically play two similar shots on the longer par 5's before a short iron. But yeah the course layout plays a big part. As I mentioned before we have some par 5's where the lay up is the 1st or 2nd shot.

My go-no go yardage is around 240yds depending on the trouble around the green and how I am striking the ball that day. If I don't like it then I will layup to 100-120 yds.

I almost always go for it. Sometimes it works....

  Me too! Its a challenge to remember that laying up can be the SMART move at times

Too many variables besides just being at the right yardage (230 yds or less for me). If I'm 90% certain I'll get up and down for a birdie (or a chance at eagle), I usually play my second to leave me around 120 yards for my third.

My problem is I always ask myself, What would Phil do?
