The Par 3 Advantage
Become a master of the Par 3’s
Just 160 yards from the flag. You can place the ball on a tee, creating the perfect lie. This is an opportunity to put a low number on your card. For many, it’s the chance for a net birdie. So what goes wrong?
We see four very common challenges. If you suffer from these, then they’re easy to overcome.
Most of you choose a club which, if struck perfectly, gets to the flag. As a minimum choose a club which, if hit perfectly, gets you to the back of the green.
We see a lot of golfers tee the ball up awfully high when using an iron. You should b e trying to create the perfect lie.
Put the ball in the fat of the green away from trouble, and you have more room for error. Don’t go flag hunting when the risk of a 5 or worse is staring at you.
We still see a lot of long irons in bags. They’re tough to hit consistently. But many of those who’ve converted to hybrids have never had a lesson to learn the technique with this club.
