Golf Tips – Take your medicine

It’s that time of the year when cold & flu viruses run amuck, one must be prepared to
react when symptoms appear. You must also be able to react to trouble spots on the golf
course and know what the smart play is. The picture on the left is a woman about to hit
her ball into the fairway with a short pitch shot, as she clearly does not have room for a
full swing. How many times have you been in a trouble spot and tried a recovery shot
which borders on the impossible like the picture on the right? The rule of thumb is do not
attempt shots on the course which you have not practiced at the range! Take your
medicine by hitting the highest percentage shot possible to get the ball back into the
fairway. I know it’s more exciting to pull off the impossible, but 9 times out 10, you end
up with a blow up hole, lose your ball, lose your temper and lose your wager.
