What Is A Go-To Golf Shot?
Your go-to golf golf shot, is a shot you have practiced many times, and because it is repeatable has the greatest probability of success under the circumstances. You've seen Tiger hit his "stinger" many times under the stress of tournament conditions. You have seen many examples of the go-to shot when watching a PGA Tour telecast.
Tour players are willing to sacrifice significant distances to increase the odds of hitting the fairway. These players understand that the probability of hitting the green from 200 yards away in the fairway is much greater than hitting the green from 150 yards away in the deep rough, a deep fairway bunker, or behind the trees. They are willing to choose a club, even an iron, that increases the probability of hitting the fairway.
