    I watched your replays, hogg105. You've played some nice shots. I especially like the flop shot. You are obviously a fan of St Andrews.

    I've had three eagles there...two front pin, one back. Two are saved in my replays and both explain the how to.

    I treat the 2nd as a Par...  anything better is a bonus.

    2 on, 2 putts.... if you stop in the same spot, then you get to know the roll on green and know how hard to hit it... Maybe work on this Idea.  

    The 2nd,4th and 8th are par holes... the rest are birdies on the Front9....  that's my plan..lol Birds on one or more of those holes, then a good score comes in

    Here i hit a tad left of ding and a tiny fraction of power off my 9 iron.

    I'd settle for this most times.

    Sound advice Roger. With the left pin I often run through 4-5 yards unless I come in with a 9i or less. But from directly behind it is a very makeable putt. Right or back pin is harder and main goal is to ensure you clear the ridge and preferably right.

    I just played 18 - 6 birdies on the way out - I missed birds on 3, 5 (drove into fescue) and 9 (3 and 9 were missed ding putts). Way in I didn't make a bird but hit every green and never over 20 feet from the pin,  - one of those days where hitting the ding is a long lost memory. No conspiracy theory - it was just me lol.

    All very good advice but as my friend Victor Van Meer demonstrates here, there is only ONE way to approach this hole,WITH STYLE.  Cameras 2 and 4 for maximum awesomeness -

    Slam dunk

    Sorry showing off, this pin placement, ideally try and hit short and let it roll down to the flag

    One bounce

    And this one, i prefer to hit right of the pin as your playing it, leaving you an uphill putt, but on either of these pin placements i'm happy to leave this hole with a par, a bird is a bonus!!

    That is one freaky shot, Paul. Is he a magician?

    You are just showing off, andwhy lol. What accuracy to go straight in. The one bounce is also spot on.

    Thanks, guys. It's good to see how it should be played.
