To optimize scoring potential on hole 14 at Chicago Golf Club, it is important to consider the weather conditions and plan accordingly. With a slight dogleg right and eight bunkers, strategic tee shots should be aimed towards the left side of the fairway to avoid trouble. The green area is relatively small, so precision will be key for approach shots. In colder temperatures, players may need to adjust their club selection due to decreased ball flight distance.

Club Recommendations

Weather: In the summer, players may experience higher temperatures and increased humidity which can impact ball flight. The altitude at Chicago Golf Club is relatively low, so this should not significantly affect shots.

High Handicapper: For a high handicapper, it is important to focus on avoiding mistakes on hole 14. With an average drive distance of 200+ yards, the player should aim for the left side of the fairway off the tee to avoid any trouble with bunkers or trees on the right. On their second shot, they should carefully select a club that will allow them to reach the green without risking landing in one of the eight bunkers surrounding it. Putting from long distances can be challenging for high handicappers, so aiming for a two-putt here would be wise.

Mid Handicapper: A mid handicapper with an average drive distance of 230+ yards has more scoring potential on hole 14 compared to a high handicapper. However, they still need to strategize their shots carefully. Aim towards the left side of fairway off tee and use their longer drive distance advantage to set up a shorter approach shot into the green area. Avoiding those eight bunkers around green will be crucial as precision is key when hitting onto such small green areas.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers are always looking for opportunities to make eagles and hole 14 at Chicago Golf Club presents just that chance! With an average drive distance of over 280 yards, they have plenty of room off tee box but must still avoid getting too close to those eight greenside bunkers. Their longer drives also give them more options when choosing clubs for their approach shots into this smaller green area - making birdie or even eagle possible if executed well.
