Practice Drills: Hazard Play and understanding your shot pattern

Last updated: June 2, 2023

Hazard Play

Using the poles at the end of the range as your guide, try and hit the golf ball as close to the line as possible without going right. Everything hit to the right would be considered in the hazard. Hit one shot with every club in the bag and track your results.



Birdie (green)
Ball lands between the selected pole, and one to the left

Par (Yellow)
Land the ball between 1 and 2 poles left of the selected pole

Bogey (red)
Land the ball more than 2 poles left of the selected pole, or right of the selected pole

Repeat with the same rules, but reversed (must land to the right of a selected pole)

Track you results to better understand your shot pattern with different constraints.
