I desire to dominate my bros on an upcoming trip to Pinehurst and I need your help. Over the past 1.5 years, a couple of buds of mine have been diving DEEP into the golf scene (fittings, lessons, trips, etc). We started playing around the same time—except for one guy who has been playing since he was a kid—and we are all about the same handicap. We trade wins back and forth depending on the round, but I have been trending towards breaking free of these fools. I want this to happen on this trip. I am taking every route to securing victory and bragging rights for this year. Got a SOLID practice schedule, fitness routine, and I am reading some awesome Golf literature to insure a sharp and calm mind. But I want more. I am committed to total domination.
We are playing Pinehurst 1, 4, the Cradle, and Tobacco Road.
No one in our group has played these courses, so I am seeking some insider trading.
For those who have played any of these courses; What are course management tips that can give me an edge? Is there a specific route I should take on a given hole? Are there general rules to keep in mind for a course? etc.
