A high tee shouldn’t be necessary here, which is good since it’s a down-sloped green. Distance control seems to be the only thing preventing better scores on this hole. Just carry the sand with backspin, but be careful not to go too far, which is worse than the sand! Here’s a 3-wood hole-out and a 4-wood hole-out. And here’s a driver skipped off the hill over the bunker!

To emphasize the importance of not going long, there’s a strip of mud before the water, and if your ball sticks here, there’s a good chance of stroke limit.  Your wedge doesn’t have the distance to get up, and longer clubs don’t have the loft.  Try a 7-iron to stick near the top of the hill, or, and this sounds crazy, turn around and chip it in the water so that you’re placed up by the green — hey, it’s better than stroke limit!

This one was well on its way there but instead turned into one of the most incredible, lucky hole-outs you’ll ever see!
