The final par 5 can usually set up drivable!  Rotate to the left, tee it low with a driver, and find a way to skip an A1 around the corner to the green.  You will usually have to get lucky and cut THROUGH the set of trees guarding the green in order to get the […]

Tahiti Cove — Hole #14: Par 4

By • Updated: Oct 9th, 2017 • Category: Tahiti Cove

Check out your tee box — if you’re on one of the two closest boxes, you’ve got a chance to drive this thing!  It takes bravery and a beautifully executed shot (or an already trashed round), but it’s fun to try! From the front box, there’s a gap in the trees, and you’ll be short […]

Laurel Park — Hole #4: Par 5

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

This is a challenging par 5 early in the round, and your results depend on your tee shot.  Always check to see if you’ve got a chance to hit an A1 over to the second fairway, because this sets up an easy look! If that’s shut down for you, see if you think you can […]



Laurel Park — Hole #5: Par 4

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

The standard approach is probably to rotate left once of the green and play an A1-type shot around the corner, with something like a 3-wood. Another approach is to take aim at the flag and play a B1-type shot, like this. Or you can rotate left an extra time and play more of an A2-type […]



Laurel Park — Hole #6: Par 4

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

The Air-O balls may rarely provide you with a chance to drive this green.  Or, if you get a great setup in the front left, you can curve it around — this one got there! Great aim here — I wish the audio were a bit better!  However, be careful of throwing it out too […]



Laurel Park — Hole #14: Par 5

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

In most cases, you can just play the ball down the fairway to the left, close to the water, and still have a wood into the green in two.  Be careful to use as much loft as you can, though, because a driver may not get high enough!  Some lower-lofted woods are fine, and here’s a […]



Laurel Park — Hole #15: Par 4

By • Updated: Feb 25th, 2017 • Category: Laurel Park

The ideal situation is to get a left box with a wind blowing right, which is very conducive to driving this green.  Here’s a hole-out from the left side.  Here’s another great shot where only a small amount of cut was required!  Here’s a great deflection with a 5-wood. You’ll often be relying on a […]
