Make Par3's a strong point in your game.
You might be surprised when you find out how some of the games top golfers play par 3’s. While some take dead aim at the flag stick on certain holes, many of the game’s most elite players will shoot for the MIDDLE of the green on par 3’s. This common sense strategy is often ignored by many amateur players at their own peril. Golf course designers often protect par 3 holes with water hazards, bunkers, and thick rough to punish players who go for sucker pins.
To AVOID these traps and master par’s remember these simple tips:
Forget about the flag:
Find a spot of grass on the middle of the green that you can use for your target and visualize your ball landing right on top of it.
Be sure of your distance:
Check the wind and weather conditions, as well as any change in elevation between the tee box and the green to determine exactly how far your ball will need fly to hit your spot. playing up hill to a green or into the wind will require more club, whilst playing down hill to a green or down wind will require less club.
Stay in the Present:
When you step up to the ball you’ve got to be 100% committed to your shot choice. If you’re second guessing yourself while you’re standing over your ball step away and remind yourself of the shot you want to play until you feel ready to make a confident swing.
With these tips you’ll be hitting more par 3 greens in regulation, and since a long putt is always better than a chip you’ll have a better chance of making pars and birdies.
If you think a strategy like this will improve your game, these are the kind of things we like to develop through our on course playing lessons.
