Club Recommendations

1. When playing from the Championship tees, aim for the center of the green to ensure you have a good chance of hitting it in two shots.

2. If you are playing from one of the shorter tee boxes, use a club with less distance such as an 8-iron or 9-iron to reach the green in two shots.

3. Make sure to factor in local weather conditions when selecting your clubs and aiming your shot since temperature, altitude and wind can all affect ball flight.

4. Avoid any bunkers surrounding the green by taking extra care with your approach shot and using more lofted clubs if necessary to keep it away from them.

5. Use practice swings before each shot to get a better feel for how far you need to hit it based on current conditions at that time (temperature, altitude, etc.).
