Plan 'B'
One of the things I think is very interesting and fun about this game is that there are a number of ways to play every hole you encounter. And sometimes a hole offers "better" ways to play it than you might think. Let me explain with a couple of experiences from my own golf life.


In my thirties and forties, I played at a club outside of San Antonio — Fair Oaks Ranch. The 18th hole was a tough par-4 with a very small landing area and a gaping bunker at about 175 yards out. The skinny fairway left of that bunker was not more than 15 yards wide and there was a little mott of trees on the green-side of the bunker that you would have to carry with your mid-iron bunker approach. Tough, to say the least. That hole drove most of us nuts, and double-bogeys were more common than birdies, for sure. Par was always a great score.

So, one day it hit me that if I hit 4-wood off the tee, I would have an elevated fairway look at the green from about 200-210, giving me another soft 4-wood or 3-iron to the green, and the fairway was about 40 yards wide back there. Being a good long-club player, I began to play the hole that way. Doubles disappeared entirely, pars became the norm, and I even made the occasional birdie. Hmmmmmm.


At my current club, the ninth hole just doesn't fit my eye or my game. I play a fade off the tee most of the time, and turning over a draw is just tough for me. Our ninth is a dogleg left, with a bunker on the right side of the fairway that runs from about 165-125 from the green, right where the prime driving area is. What makes this hole so tough for me is that the prevailing wind is left-to-right and trees just 60-100 yards off the tee keep me from starting the ball out left and letting it ride the breeze. This is another one where birdies are rare for me there, and bogeys and doubles way too frequent.

So, it dawned on me the other day... finally... that I could hit 4-wood right at that bunker and not get to it, leaving me a 5- or 6-iron into the green, rather than the short iron the rare proper drive would leave me. So, there's my new strategy on that hole. I'm a good mid-iron player, so I'm fine with that — and that &@#$ fairway bunker will never catch me again.

My point in all this is that sometimes a hole gets under your skin, or just doesn't set up well for your game. When that happens, design for yourself a "Plan B" — change the way you play it, at least for a while. Quite often, you will find a solution to a problem and your scores and attitude will improve.

I'm just sayin'...

The trouble with this method is that you get good a playing "A" course. if you then play somewhere else your stuck.
The advantage though is that it does teach you to read the course which sometimes transfers to other courses.
Recently stated playing a new course my friend who hits it a mile is stuck because the course is a lot shorter. My wedges help with accuracy over distance
scottishguyiniowa says:
The big thing to learn from this is to always check the yardages to bunkers (or hazards in general) off the tee to give you more options to play a hole.

This is the best practice to have plan-B along with the plan-A. For thinking about plan-B takes time but if you have paln-B that saves you if you stuck in some sort of struggle. I work for Academic help USA and on my work I always try to have paln-B.

I am a Spa Manager at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bangalore. I have more than 18 experience in the Spa industry, with a particular focus on the luxury spa segment. I have started my career in the spa industry at the Lemon Tree Hotel. After seven years there, I have participated in a “Black Belt-Exchange Programme” to improve my language skills for 3 months. Do you know, how I got information about the program, from the online portal – Spa In Bangalore. I have used it for finding a job and one day I came across this program on the portal and decided to join it.

I then started to work as a Spa Sales Consultant at the Radisson Blu Hotel and other wellness hotels in Bangalore. In 2003, I became Spa Receptionist at Radisson Blu Hotel, Spa Supervisor in 2006, and Spa Manager in 2009.

After getting a degree in Hotel and Tourism Management, I quickly saw how much the Spa industry starting to grow and decided to move into that field.

Starting out as a Massage Therapist, I took the leap into massage education and started out my massage school. That was my dream so I was desperate to achieve that and that's the reason behind my leap. I served on the board of the Ahmedabad Massage Therapy Council for almost 5 years before heading up its new school approval process, which oversees the approval of 130+ massage schools.

Do you know, how did I get started in the massage industry? One of the leading Spa In Ahmedabad portals has helped me a lot to find the foremost massage class in my area. I found massage as a result of my marathon training and let me tell you I had not been much of a runner up until this point of my life, so the long runs left me sore for days. After a few days, I have realized that others in my group were incorporating massage in their daily life so I thought I also need to give it a try.

I am a blogger and once I got a chance to talk with the owner of the most popular massage centers of Kolkata. She is a true personality, speaks from her heart and helps others find the courage they lost in their entrepreneurial journey.

About five years ago, she showed up at a strategies incubator seminar stressed, burnt out, and on the edge of losing everything. The next salon she opened turned into a disaster, things got ugly, and she was left with the pile of debt, unpaid roll taxes, landlords, and angry creditors.

She learned the skills and disciplines of Salon and Spa leadership, Financial and cash-flow management, how to inspire and drive team productivity, and how to get rid of the commission pay that was drawing the financial life out of her company. So, it became a long hard for her to climb out of such a hellish and seemingly hopeless mess. But she didn’t lose her hope and started coaching with strategies.
