"Optimizing Scoring Potential on Hole 6 at Blue Hills Country Club for Low Handicappers"

As the #1 ranked PGA Tour Golfer in the world, your low handicapper is always looking to make eagles on par 5s. However, Hole 6 at Blue Hills Country Club presents a challenging opportunity with its slight dogleg left and water hazards. With varying teebox distances and weather conditions throughout the year, strategic risk calculations should be made to optimize scoring potential.

Weather plays a crucial role in ball flight conditions and hole difficulty. In Kansas City, Missouri, where Blue Hills Country Club is located, altitude can impact distance by up to 10%. Additionally, temperature and wind can also significantly affect ball flight. Be sure to take these factors into account when selecting clubs for each shot.

With a distance of 567 yards from the Championship teebox, this hole offers plenty of opportunities for long hitters. A strong drive of over 280 yards will put you within reach for an eagle attempt. However, be cautious as there are four bunkers strategically placed throughout the fairway that could ruin your chances.

When approaching the green which has an area of 11024 sq ft and only one percent bunker coverage (equivalent to approximately one green side bunker), aim for accuracy rather than power. The key here is to avoid any mistakes that could cost you strokes or even worse - landing in the water hazard.

In conclusion, Hole 6 at Blue Hills Country Club requires careful consideration of weather conditions and strategic risk-taking by low handicappers aiming for eagle opportunities while mitigating potential mistakes near water hazards or bunkers.
