Tip of the week - 2nd Hole
I think our 2nd hole is a great risk reward golf hole. I think if it came later in the round it would yield more pars and birdies but as it comes so early in the round makes it a more difficult decision off of the tee. Bigger hitters can hit the green but have to be so accurate with the tee shot, although you may be able to reach the green it also brings more trouble into play. I see a lot of golfers take a driver and hope for the best. Even if they hit a solid drive they will leave themselves too close to the green.
Although that might sound like a strange concept to most but if you are too close you have fewer options to play your approach. The safest approach will help make more birdies but more importantly make less costly mistakes. I'd recommend hitting the club you carry 180 yards aiming at the right half of the fairway. This will leave you a fuller short shot into the green and be able to play it more aggressively. Go with a driver if you're feeling good but don't ruin a round early by trying to hit a small percentage shot.
