Video Golf Tip | Hitting Over Water

Hi, I am Glen Farnsworth from the Jim McLean Golf School. One of the most unique things about the Blue Monster at Doral, and what makes it so difficult, are the par threes and the fact that the wind is always blowing. What I would like to show you here is that when you are hitting over water there are two things that are crucial. Number one: getting the correct yardage and choosing the correct club; and number two: 100 percent commitment to a full finish. Remember, the right club, the right yardage and commit to a full finish. I hope this tip helps you to enjoy the Blue Monster and courses like it a little more.
