THE PRO-SHOP REPORT
LINKS GOLF

 

With The Open Championship around the corner, I thought it would be fitting to discuss something about links golf. One aspect we are fully aware of, from playing this sort of golf, is the fact that most parts of the course are exposed to all weather elements, and for us playing Humewood, wind is what we encounter more often than not.

One nice thing about playing your golf on a links course, your shots are not restricted in any way which brings me to my next point: Managing your way around the greens with all the natural contours.

I see this way too often- players tend to grab the 60 degree wedge for the chip, trying to play that nice skip and spin shot. This, in my opinion, is not always the correct decision which can cost you 1 or 2 extra shots.

My rule of thumb is that when you have green to work with, get the ball rolling as soon as possible as one can predict the roll more than the spin. In other words, rather use the 9 or 8 iron or even the 5 iron when you miss the famous 6th hole at Humewood and compare your result in the end. As with The Open this weekend, I am sure we will be spoilt by the creativity of the pro’s around the greens.
