    Par 5's at legacy are always high risk, and usually require PI to reach in 2.

    Area 1:


    Using Xiao Ling Big Air/Big Air hit something like a 5w off the tee, and have the ball come to rest on the up slope right after the trap. If you hit the down slope near the yardage marker because of wind or spray don't attempt to go at the green. From the up slope a 1w or 3wood ex power is enough to make it as long as there is no strong headwind. This route takes the trees out of play by using a high trajectory shot, or enough room to shape the ball around the bigger tree. 98-100% Solid Lie.

    Area 2:


    Using Xiao Ling Big Air/Big Air hit a powered 3wood off the tee and try to land on or near the last yardage marker before the small trap. You will get about 35-40yards of roll here after catching the down slope. This shot is shorter but still requires PI to near pin. It will also be a side hill lie that you have to maneuver around the opening in the trees. Always hit something with at least BS to increase the trajectory since it is a downhill lie, if you under hit it, it is automatically out of bounds.

    Basically 3/4 of the legacy par 5's require 1 perfect shot in the sequence to reach consistency but all 3 come with a major penalty if you miss. Don't be afraid to layup and concede the eagle, it does you no good to risk a small % shot unless you are pbing. I personally think the par 5's on legacy are done really well, execution is rewarded, but go for it and fail and you pay a hefty price.

    Very informative I really appreciate it.

    Also the info on Legacy's PAR 5's is interesting, I'll need to work a bit harder to get a little better on that course (nothing crazy though).
    They must of had a huge lag 2000 years ago. It took Jesus three days to respawn.

    I could also use some help with 18 on Kagurayama. I usually end up with a massive putt (if I don't end up in the water).

    Considering no wind and a neutral lie, for a character with either a fade or a draw, how would you aim towards your target? And if you do make any adjustment, what ratio do you consider base on distance from pin? Thanks

    This is a pretty touchy thing to try and adjust for because there are a lot of factors to consider. Lie, elevation, distance, spin stat, control stat. etc. A few points to consider:

    -More Elevation = less distance Fading/Drawing
    -Uphill Green = less roll
    -SBS = there really isn't an adjustment
    -SSS = adjust so that the ball flight crosses the path of the pin
    -STS = Don't hit it with a green that goes the same way as the curve of the fade or draw. As it exaterates the green curvature.

    There isn't a set formula for Fade/Draw, but we know that hitting SS the opposite direction equals a straighter shot, and is important for course management. In my opinion, the best way to play the Fade/Draw in most regular approach situations is to aim normally, because you gain more benefit from control spray this way, compared to favoring one side of the pin or the other.

    If you are attempting trick shots though, this becomes a whole different kind of monster to deal with.

    Thanks. I appreciate your thorough explanation. This will definitely help.
