Here’s a hole-out from the back box and a 6-iron ace over the right side from the front box.  This one bounced off the roof but still found its way home!  And here’s a 7-iron from the middle box off the angle of the roof, but the left-blowing wind pushed it home.

Aim for the playground grass with the swings, and hope you leave yourself a shot!  This one jumps in the sandbox off the drive — you don’t want this to happen.  However, here’s a hole-out having to stand in the sandbox.

Another option is laying up to the right in the fairway and bringing in a driver — this one was hot!

You can also try to cut the corner over the fence into the trees to the fairway, but it’s dangerous.  This one just made it, and here’s a hole-out from there.

There are narrow gaps through the trees, either straight or curved — this one made it straight through and almost found the cup.  This one was angled straight through and got some incredible hops and roll into the hole!  Here’s another one straight through with a great deflection at the end.

Here’s a hole-out from the fairway after cutting the corner a bit, and here’s a hole-out after laying up straight ahead.

This one just barely made the green — then found the cup!



Palm Springs — Hole #13: Par 5

This hole is long, so try to get it as far as you can to the right side of the fairway.  Even in the middle of the fairway, if hit long, you can still have plenty of room to work around the trees.  Here’s a nice 3-wood hole-out.

Another option is to lay back along the very left edge of the fairway and work your way around the left side — this driver was very well-played.

Here’s a driver hole-out from the middle box.  This 3-wood hopped in from the front box.  Here’s a 5-wood from the front box that trickled back in, followed by a nice 7-wood floater from the front box.  And here’s a driver ace from the back box.
