PostSubject: Specific Holes you Hate!!   Wed Jan 16, 2013 3:23 pm

I've played many courses in the valley and a couple of them have holes I dread when I step on the tee box.

#3 at Kokopelli - Short par 4 with water all along the left hand side and in front of the green. Buildings to the right side. The water and buildings take driver out of my hands off the tee. This usually leaves me with a 120-150 shot over the water in front of the green. If it goes in you still have to play a 20 yard pitch over the water. If I walk away from the hole with a 6 I am very happy.

#11 at Johnson Ranch - Short downhill par 3 that requires you to carry the desert all the way to the green. Usually a PW or 9 from the tee but if you miss hit it you are playing out of the rocks.

#1-18 at Ocotillo - So much water!!!

#8 at ColdWater is a Par 3 that I can not stand to play. It's a blind t-shot over water to a 3 shelf green. It is truly annoying hole for me.

17 at Falcon Field. It's a Par 5 with water on the right. I always block it into the water every time!

17 at Hillcrest. It's a par 3 at 270 yards........YUP!

I think they have a Par 3 at the Mesa Country Club that is 250-260. You shouldn't have to pull driver out on a Par 3.

That's a Joke. The pros don't even have par 3's that long do they?

Even at that distance pros are pulling a 3 wood out.

Callaway X Hot Fairway Wood Supposing that you've got ever before wondered what magic threshold you will need to cross to become a first-rate player, it is basic: You need to manage distance together with your mizuno jp. I've often been obsessed with distance command. When I felt my iron match was at its peak, I'd in some cases inquire my caddy for your distance to 50 % a lawn. You management distance by hitting the golf balls solidly and varying the length and pace of your golf swing. If you do that nicely, you come to be extra precise, which rubs off on your own direction, as well? The week I won the 1974 Tucson Open, I hit hole or the flagstick ten occasions.
