Mastering Match Play: The Keys to a Great Approach Shot

Published on

Attacking the pin isn't always going to be your best approach when it comes to match play.
With this in mind, it's important to pick a distance and a target that will give you an opportunity to defeat your opponent.
PGA Coaches David Bach and Abby Parsons help players improve their games every day at Whistling Straits. We were fortunate to catch up with the rising stars from the Wisconsin Section to get their take keys to a great approach shot.
Be sure to try the alignment drill from Bach when you're ready to fire away & remember— Aim small, miss small.
