#5 - PLAY THE COURSE NOT YOUR PARTNER

Just because a hole is 300 to 400 yards, don’t automatically reach for your driver or 3-wood for your tee shot.

While a hybrid can also be your friend in this situation, a 2, 3 or 4-iron is just as versatile and can help you plot your way down the fairway into prime position.

Chances are there are bunkers and trees strategically positioned to catch the unsuspectiing mid-handicapper who lets their heart rule their head with the big stick.

While your colleagues have found trouble, there’s no better feeling than clipping a crisp iron onto the green. 

Playing from the fairway is more often than not a lot more important than being 30 yards ahead in the rough. You have better control from the short grass.
