After some advice on how to play the stroke index 1 at my local club. I am having a lot of difficulty on this tee and its starting to be a big mental thing. So I am looking at my club selection and target line to play the hole a bit safer and hopefully keep my score down with your help.
The problems I face with this hole are highlighted in the picture below. I tend to hit my driver 230-240 with a decent hit on to the fairway. My normal shot is a high flight and with a slight fade. All being well if I hit my driver on the green line which is my normal target line and its goes as planned it fades and leaves me about 200 yards to the green.
Sadly this doesn't happen too often on this hole. My common problems are as follows
(1) I hit the ball with a draw or hook and lose the ball to the out of bounds over the fence (most common problem)
(2) I try and hit the ball to hard and my fade turns into a slice and goes into the thick bushes on the right and is unplayable
(3) I down club to a 4hybrid, then hole plays like a par 5
here is my average distance for clubs, just incase you have any suggestions for me
