Every hole is different Bump

Sometimes I GPS my distance to a layup distance from the middle of the green from the tee or for 2nd shot on a par 5

Usually just the flag though - but I do Ping bunkers and mounds behind the green where I'm playing for safety

I like that!

(if I am reading that right)

 

the 15th at Piney is a great example of a hole you should play backwards. Standing on the green and looking back gives you a way better idea of how to play the hole than what it does from the tee.

 

Just for fun, this weekend we'll pick a few holes to look back from the green to see how we could have/should have played the hole.

Sounds like a plan

Most of them will be something like - shouldn't have hit driver into those trees, or shouldn't have missed that green with a sand wedge!

Funny you say this guys, generally when mowing greens, we do tend to drive from green to tee, so definitely able to dissect your game a lot more.

Other holes at piney would be 3,6,7,9and 18.

Always thought the 4th hole looked better when looking back up towards tee from green

"This is the great thing about Northern Ireland.    I walk down the street and people stop me and say things like, "I know you.   You're that wee golfer, aren't you?"   I say, "Yeah, that's me."   They say, "Keep it up, wee man."   It's very funny, and that's why I want to stay here as long as possible."
