If you have a tendency to make the occasional big number on a Par 5, it is a good idea to come into the hole with a different strategy. Think of the hole in 3 shots, working from the green backwards. Before hitting your tee shot at Private golf clubs in Scottsdale think of where you want to hit your third shot from. What is your most comfortable yardage? 75 yards, 100 yards, 120 yards??? Your goal should be to hit your third shot from a very comfortable yardage.
After deciding where you want the third shot to be hit from, you now think of how to get there. For example, if you are playing a 500-yard par 5 and you want to be 100 yards for your third shot, all you need is 400 yards out of your first 2 shots. That can be broken down in a number of ways (250-150, 225-175, 200-200). This doesn’t necessarily mean that you will always need to hit driver off the tee at Scottsdale golf club. Try this strategy and you should be able to hit the green in regulation more often and give yourself more birdie looks and eliminate the big numbers.
Tip #3 Picking the Right Club (Layup and Approach Shot)
Knowing how far you hit your clubs at Scottsdale private golf courses (carry and total distance) is key for both laying up on a Par 5 and also for hitting your approach shot. It is important when laying up that you LAYUP. If you can’t reach the green on your second shot, it is better to lay up to a comfortable yardage than it is to leave yourself with a 40-70 yard pitch shot. It is also important to avoid laying up into trouble. Make sure that you pick a club that can’t reach certain fairway bunker or hazards to ensure an easier approach shot.
When hitting your approach shot into the green at Scottsdale private golf courses it is important to hit a club that will carry the correct yardage to land on the green. With a majority of the greens at DC Ranch being surrounded by bunkers, it is important to play a club that will take the bunkers short of the green out of play. Learning your carry and total yardages with each club will allow you to hit more greens in regulation on Par 5’s and give you more birdie opportunities and easier pars at Private golf clubs in Scottsdale
