At first this course looks like Bonnie Moor, suggesting low-score potential, but the rough is absolutely brutal here. Do all you can to stay away from it, as it severely limits your distance on approach shots and ruins your touch on short chip shots. If you can do that, you can certainly score low here.
Most pros use the Hawks on this course to allow control with the lower-lofted hybrids on longer approach shots. There isn’t much need for any high-lofted woods, but they can help you out on a couple shots, so some pros play the Flares here insteaed. I’d still recommend the Hawks. Many pros like the Streak balls for their distance, but I like the Razors this year to give you backspin and roll as well as distance and a soft landing on the green.
