That's a hard one for me. I'm bad about putting away driver, because it's such a weapon for me. I just need to pull the 5W which I hit straight as an arrow and farther than a lot of people's 3W and driver.


You might have the chance in this scramble to do this a few times when your D players are teeing off first and force you into a position that requires you to make the safe play off the tee.

Chappy....what course. I'm sure it's around here.
Sightlines and do you know what tees you are playing.

I have a tournament Saturday and I already know a simple strategy on holes I struggle with out there. Sometimes it goes to shite if I start off bad and need birdies

Carries. Can you carry trees bunkers water. What club will you be using most. What distance. What’s ur miss with that club. Go the side of you miss around green and chip from fringe and rough. 4 quandrants of green. Putt in all 4 and see breaks. Check to see if all balls break to a certain point. Have plans. Like at Santa Maria hole one, If pin was on right I hit driver because I’m lefty and can’t draw well. If pin on left I hit iron off tee and cut one in.

re: Practice rounds before a tournament
I agree with what most have said. One more thing to consider being that you'll be the better player in your group is to play to the strengths of the rest of your team.

For example, if half your team cant hit a wedge from 100 yards and in, then it might not make sense to nut a driver on a short par 4. I have been the better player on a couple of scrambles (we lost bigly) but one thing that I didnt do great was account for the weaknesses of my group. We all chunk a shot from time to time, so it's nice to be in a position where the weaker players can make up for better players mistakes.

Study the green complexes.

Is going over the green jail?
Would middle of the green give you a reasonable chance to 2 putt?

Are the green speeds consistent?

Pay attention to distance to various hazards?
Figure out your go numbers on forced carries.
Figure out what you might need to layup with if you can’t carry the hazard.

Figure out general theme to the greens.

re: Practice rounds before a tournament
I'm playing the Wetlands tomorrow in a scramble. If I was scouting before a round. I'd look at the t shot on no.2, no. 5. If one of your guys hit a good drive there you can cut the corner on 2 and on 5 you can play up the right side. On 7 you can either pipe your driver of layup to a good yardage.

On the back I really think 12 is one of the hardest hole on the layout. Even though it's a scramble par is a good score esp if your group is weaker.

On 17, a layup usually works but if they hit a good drive you can cut off more of the dogleg.

Goodluck hit em well
