Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper:

As a low handicapper, you have the distance and accuracy to take on this challenging par 4. With a drive of over 280 yards, you can easily clear the fairway bunkers and set yourself up for an approach shot to the green. Keep in mind that during colder seasons or windy days, your ball flight may be impacted by altitude and temperature changes. So make sure to adjust accordingly and aim for the center of the green to avoid any potential trouble.

Mid Handicapper:

For mid handicappers with a drive of around 230 yards, this hole presents some challenges. You will need to carefully navigate your tee shot towards the right side of the fairway as there is more room for error on that side. However, keep in mind that strong winds or higher altitudes may impact your ball flight and require adjustments in club selection. Your approach shot should be aimed at avoiding the small greenside bunker which could lead to costly mistakes.

High Handicapper:

As a high handicapper with a shorter drive of around 200 yards, it's important to focus on accuracy rather than distance on this hole. Aim for the wider left side of the fairway off the tee and use shorter irons or hybrids for your approach shots towards the green. Be aware that altitude changes can affect your ball flight so choose clubs accordingly and try to avoid any trouble around or near those greenside bunkers.

Overall Tips:

Regardless of handicap level, precision is key when playing Hole 14 at Winged Foot Golf Club's West Course. The slight dogleg left requires careful planning off each tee box while keeping weather conditions in mind throughout all four seasons - especially wind direction which can greatly impact shots into this green complex.
