擅用球場攻略降低桿數

撰文: James Stewart 

我的高球信念是透過擅用你的強項去助你打出最佳桿數。試想想,你曾經有多少次在擊球前感到不知如何是好?

香港球場的球道一般比較狹窄,令球場攻略更顯重要,加上果嶺面積一般都很小,令到在果嶺邊的球位更難處理。因此,當我認定不可能一桿攻上果嶺的時候,我會先打至果嶺附近,選擇離旗桿還我感到最舒服的距離,而關鍵是球位可讓我在下一桿打全揮桿。

正如圖片所示,我正在打粉嶺伊甸球場的第 7 號五桿洞。我的開球落點不太好,視覺上看不清楚旗桿,因此我不會選擇第二桿直攻果嶺,反而會打至落點離旗桿 100 碼處,讓我在第三桿可輕鬆全揮沙桿。以距離而言,我的確可以輕鬆地憑第二桿就打到果嶺附近,但卻要顧及離果嶺 50 至 60 碼的沙坑,甚至可能打出一記 20 至 30 碼的高難度高拋球,才可越過果嶺前的沙坑。

全揮桿的好處,是可以容許我們製造更大的回旋,尤其是圖中的旗位並沒有在果嶺上提供太大的落點面積。第三桿我打了一記全揮沙桿,為自己製造了一個 15 尺 鳥推的機會。今次講解的策略能有效助我增加抓鳥機會以及避免 Bogey 失誤,相對而言,如果我在第二桿選擇盡可能打到果嶺附近,其實相反會降低抓鳥機率和很大機會會吃下 Bogey。

如果你也想有效降低桿數,就認真地參考我提議的球場攻略吧!
