October 8 Grand Lake Golf Report
What is golf course management?
At the heart of the matter, golf course management is really about putting yourself in situations that play to your strengths, and avoiding situations that expose your weaknesses.
The importance of staying out of trouble is that you save yourself 2 strokes, the penalty and the one that got you there. 2 strokes you didn't need, and that is good course management. When one stroke will keep you out of trouble, it never hurts to make a bogey, instead of that triple with those 2 extra strokes
Learn to lay up if you have to and don’t play pin-ball among the trees. Trying to shoot through a 2 foot gap in the woods can cause more than just 2 strokes, That little smack against the tree trunk can cost you another 2/3 strokes. It is better to take an unplayable and get a better position than stay in the woods for more strokes
.Before you play any shot, pick out where you want your ball to land. You may not make it every single time, but eventually you will hit your target more often than not.
"Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golfers become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five." John Updike

James was playing a round of golf with the club pro one day and after 18 holes they went into the clubhouse.
James asked the pro: "What do you think of my game?"
The pro replied: "You should shorten your clubs by 1 inch."
James asked if the pro thought this would help his game.
To which the pro said: “No: But It will help them fit in the trash can!"
