"Strategic Par 5 with Varying Tee Distances and Potential Weather Conditions"

For low handicappers, the 12th hole at Winged Foot Golf Club is a prime opportunity to make an eagle. With a drive of over 280 yards, players can potentially reach the green in two shots. However, this requires careful planning and execution as there are three bunkers strategically placed along the fairway that could come into play.

Mid handicappers should focus on accuracy off the tee to set up for their approach shot onto the large green. With distances ranging from approximately 230-280 yards depending on tee box selection, it's important to take note of potential weather conditions such as wind or temperature changes that could impact ball flight.

High handicappers should prioritize avoiding mistakes on this hole. With shorter drives averaging around 200 yards, it may be best for these players to lay up and aim for a comfortable wedge shot onto the green rather than attempting risky long shots.

The slight dogleg left adds another element of strategy to this par 5. Players must carefully consider their positioning off the tee in order to have a clear approach shot onto the large green which measures at approximately 10,041 square feet.

With only three bunkers scattered throughout this hole and only about five percent of them located on or near the green itself, bunker play shouldn't be too much of a concern for any handicap level – unless you find yourself in one of those "green side bunkers," then good luck! Overall, precise planning and smart execution will lead all players towards success on this strategic par 5 at Winged Foot Golf Club.
