To be fair, the courses we played did not really have much of either. Although I'm sure you found both... 😛
Number 4 was going to be "putt your ass off," but that's not really a game management thing. @iacasis by far the best putter I've ever seen. Golf is a lot easier if you're making a couple of 30 footers each round, and your gimme range is legitimately 5-8 feet, haha.
There was far more separation between our short games and putting than there was between our driving and iron play.
Also, his drives hardly end up in a hazard or OB. Avoiding stroke and distance is a big thing.
Yea, like he said for par 5's. You need on really good shot to make par. (i think this is close enough). You can hit a bad drive (not OB), maybe thin a hybrid, miss the green, but still get up and down for par.
Also helps he is a really good putter and has a really good short game ;).
