Every golf hole has it's own set of obsticles that have to be navigated. Water, sand traps, deep rough, wooded areas and other hazards can create serious trouble for the golfer that does not use good golf course management.
Take the time to study each hole before you play it. Note where the difficulty lies and do your best to navigate it. Turn your assessments into a working plan for each golf hole and watch your scores decrease.
