November 27, 2015 Posted by Matt

bail out areaLook for a bail out area.  On difficult holes, the golf course architect will often give the player a bail out area.  If, for example, you have a shot over water to a pin that is placed near the hazard, look for an area where you can land your ball safely and then pitch or chip to the hole on your next shot.  Sometimes, you will be able to find bail out areas for your tee shot or lay up shot on par five holes.  Examine the hole to see how you can play these difficult holes as safely as possible.
