Hole 13, a 393-yard par 4 at Pebble Beach, features a slight dogleg left. With an average tee shot of 217 yards, a strategic iron off the tee is advisable to navigate the fairway and avoid the seven scattered bunkers, only 1% of which are greenside. This setup allows for an aggressive approach shot. Weather conditions, particularly strong winds in summer and cooler, calmer conditions in winter, play a significant role in club selection and shot control.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should focus on staying in play off the tee with a controlled iron shot. This conservative approach helps avoid the bunkers and sets up a straightforward second shot. For the approach, a mid to high iron, like a 7-iron, should suffice to reach the green in regulation. Be particularly mindful of the weather, adjusting for wind and temperature fluctuations to maintain shot accuracy.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might opt for a more aggressive iron or a fairway wood off the tee, aiming for distance while still prioritizing fairway placement. On the approach, a 7-iron should be adequate for a 140-yard shot to the green. Weather conditions, especially wind speed and direction, are crucial considerations, affecting both tee and approach shots.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers can use a long iron or a fairway wood off the tee to gain a favorable position on the fairway. With their precision, they can be more assertive with the approach, choosing a club that allows for accurate distance control, like a mid-iron. Seasonal weather variations, particularly the strong summer winds and cooler winter conditions, must be accounted for to optimize shot making.

"The most important shot in golf is the next one."
