One of the things that proper golf course management can do is force you to make realistic club selections.

In order to make proper club selections, you must first spend time hitting your clubs on a driving range and becoming familiar with the distance each club gives you.

You will also want to pay attention to the height you get with each club, and which clubs seem easier to control in terms of placing shots where you want them..

If you are more comfortable putting from the fringe than chipping, then use that in your round.

If you get more accuracy with your 3-iron than your 5-wood then use that for longer approach shots.

Understand your clubs and become familiar with what they can do to help you manage the course and improve your game.

Golf joke

A woman went to the local newspaper office to have the obituary for her recently deceased husband published.

The obit editor informed her that there was a charge of 50 cents per word.

She paused, reflected, and then she said, “Well then, let it read: ‘Fred Brown died.’”

Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor told her that there was a seven-word minimum for all obituaries.

She thought it over and after a few seconds she said, "In that case, let it read, ‘Fred Brown died. Golf clubs for sale.’"
