Always hit it closer (dont lay up) (where is this?) - Page 2

post #19 of 21

A golfer should always hit their next shot off the best lie possible, so with that in mind,  I would think most amateurs should go with the H/9I. Another plus is being able to see the green. An up hill lie, unless it is a practiced shot, can get ugly really quick. Closer is not always better from a scoring stand point.

While nothing is absolute, proximity to the hole is the number one factor for lower scores. I heard someone say that once, I think it's part of a book too :-P

Unless the lies are awkward as heck in the valley, I'd get down to the valley and hit from there.

The 12th at Kahkwa is similar (second shot on a par five).

I thought you might since you're from Erie. Yea, I don't like the hole really either. BTW, I meant to say hit the ball180-200 off the tee then wedge it into the green. In a scramble, if one of my partners had layed up properly, I'd bomb away. Normally there is too much trouble to warrant driver or any wood on that hole. I really like the course though. Love number 4, that little par 3 with the elevated tee.

You have to avoid the high risk shot unless you're forced to (ie to try to prevent losing a match), especially if the reward is not that great (70 yard pitch versus 9 or PW full shot).
