Course Strategy - Playing to a Tight Pin

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 31 Jul 2017 | Comments ()

There are so many occasions when golfers waste lots of golfers going after flags that are too tucked away and are dangerous to take on. Peoples ego's can get in the way of a clear and focused mindset which leads to a variety of bad shots. 

James Reeson evaluates his method to approaching these shots and shows you the best way to successfully get through these risky holes unscathed.

The initial step is to be brutally honest with yourself and your current form during the round. If you have been hitting your iron shots on a string all day, then perhaps taking on a pin like this wouldn't be the worst thing. Alternatively, if you have been struggling controlling iron shots, being honest with yourself and accepting the middle of the green is a sensible and smart play.

The next step would be to be clear about the shot you are trying to play and committing to the choice you have made. By playing the shot you feel most confident with based on the situation in front of you the outcome is most likely to be the result you want.
