WBZ Golf Tips: Teeing Off On A Par 5

BOSTON (CBS) – Heading to the tee on any Par 5 can be intimidating for a golfer.

For this week’s golf tip on WBZ-TV’s Sports Final OT, Danny Caverley of Willowbend Country Club has some advice for those long holes.

“Take two clubs up to the tee; a driver and a three-wood,” said Caverley, Director of Instruction at Willowbend in Mashpee. “A lot of times lower handicap players don’t need to hit a driver on a par five because they can’t make the green in two anyways.”

Caverley points out that many times, players over-swing on par fives, so staying relaxing and going through your normal routine are key.

“Make sure your grip pressure doesn’t get too tight,” said Caverley.

A nice easy swing will put you in good position for a birdie or par, with no need to gamble the rest of the way.

Tune in to Sports Final on WBZ-TVĀ  Sunday night at 11:35pm for your weekly golf tips.
