Score Better On The Par 5's

By Darren

"Scoring Better On The Par 5's!"

Over 90% of the Golfers I  see average more over par on the Par 5's than on the Par 3's or 4’s. While 100% of the PGA Tour Players average more under par on the Par 5’s than they do on the 3’s and 4’s.

Maybe there’s something we can learn from the best Players?

When I see the regular Golfer'S ready to hit their second shot on a Par 5 - even before they size up the shot … they get out of their cart, walk to their bag, and pick out their 3 wood.

And they end up the round with 1 Bogey, 2 Double Bogeys, and 1 Triple Bogey … to go 8 over on the Par 5’s.

So most Golfers are 8 over par on what should be the four easy holes and still have to play the fourteen difficult holes - where they’ll have to score only 9 over par if they want to break 90. I say the 14 difficult holes because the best Golfer in the world averages over par on those holes.

Instead make a plan. The best Golfers make a PLAN on every shot based on what they do best (Strengths) and what they do worst (Weaknesses). They then play the hole based on their Strengths … not based on what everyone else is doing.

The Player’s favorite club on any hole is whatever puts them in position to play to their Strengths

Go ahead, Be a Player!
