9 Holers Club - Chester Washington GC- Oct. 12th
Play It Safe. While practicing with my coach recently, he advised me, when in doubt play it safe. He emphasized if a shot over trouble forces you to hit a club you’re not comfortable with, don’t push your luck, “lay up” instead. On television, the pros make going for the green seem glamorous, no matter how far away they are. For recreational players, deciding to layup or go for the green on long holes can be a tough call. While the rewards may be rich, the percentages may not be in your favor.
So make a rule for yourself. If carrying a hazard between you and the green means you would have to use a club you’re not confident with, play it safe and “lay up”-no exceptions.
Play to your strengths and choose a club you trust to lay up to your strongest distance. For example, if you are a wiz with your full wedge shots and you know you hit your pitching wedge 70 yards, try laying up to 70 yards from the center of the green. The key is to choose a lay-up target area that’s in the fairway, with good angle to the flag.
