Getting a little cooler and that dang time change has left me with hitting into a net after work or possibly, weather permitting, walking a few holes at lunch

I have a new nemesis....Hole#5 is an uphill, 494 yard, Par 5. It's the number one handicap hole on Eglin AFB's Falcon course.
To the left, a tropical forest with poisonous snakes and spiders. To the right, more tropical forest, yep - more critters crawling around. We rarely go in looking for our ball. I'm reminded of my wife telling me to quit ruining $60 golf shirts, looking for a $3 golf ball!!
It's relatively straight, perhaps a slight bend to the left on the approach shot. To keep things interesting, there's a ditch, about 230 yards off the tee, too far across to carry with a driver - so you have to lay-up.
I mistakenly birdied the hole a few weeks ago and am now feeling the wrath of the Golf Gods!!
My last two rounds, I've lost four balls in total (three of which happened during a tournament round) on this hole. Recording a 10 and an 8 on this hole. This one hole, totally negated my 3 birdies on the front side, blowing what could have been a great round!! Aaaggghhh.
There's an elevated, very narrow landing zone platform we all try to hit - it's about 210 yards out, but only about 15 yards wide. But...one wrong bounce, and you're in recovery mode hitting off an uneven lie, out of the rough.
After Saturday's round, I've decided to leave my 3-wood and even my hybrid in the bag. My new strategy is a 5-iron off the tee, laying up well back - but in the wider part of the fairway. Then taking a 3-wood in from there. That'll leave me a relatively short pitching wedge into the green.
Wish me luck... -- P.J.


Sounds like a good plan. BTW I was born at Eglin AFB while my Dad was stationed there.
