Golf Tip – Front Pin

front pinIf there is a front pin placement on the green, don’t be tempted to try to hit it close.  A front pin is usually placed in a position that also comes along with trouble if you miss.  Look to see if there is a slope away from the green in the front.  Many times there’s also bunkers strategically placed to catch your ball when it hits and rolls right off the green into the sand.  You are better off taking a little extra club and play the hole a little bit longer so you end up safely on the green.  You will end up with more pars if you go for the center of the green and two putt than if you come up short and have to chip or play a bunker shot because you were trying to knock it close to a front pin.
