Just got my FORE magazine for Winter 2019 and saw a little one-page feature on the "Risk/Reward" associated with hole 17, a 275 yd par-4. (page 20)

The feature talks about ways to play it - (I paraphrase) safe, aggressive, and balls-out.

Looking at the drawing, I quickly thought:

option 1. me

option 2. rat-patrol

option 3. mpisarski !!!! or JohnnyGK!!!

LOL

The way I think of a golf ball when I put it on the tee is, IF HE DIES.... HE DIES!

Always have to give it a go! The layup is no bargain and the second shot to that tiny multi-tiered green is even worse! I’d rather take my chances from one of those green side traps assuming I can hit it straight enough lol

I'm always trying to hit driver (key word trying - lol) with a draw (r to l) to the right side of the green. Push it a little its still a nice angle to the green for a pitch on. Find the front green side bunker, very tough spot to escape but worth the risk for me.

Played it twice, both times 'aggressive.' One birdie, one triple bogey! Golf!

QUOTED  First time there playing 17, I was playing with Mark/itslikeimsayin, he drove the green front right with the pin up top on the left and then . . .


I remember that. I believe he did win closest to the pin though.

I saw the article, too. I forget which option was which.

Me, I usually opt for a 7-iron to the middle of the fairway, then try to hit wedge to the pin.
