Pressure Round

So I cruised up to the 1st tee, and once I reached into my bag, I realized I only had 3 balls.  This course is long, and danger lurks everywhere.  I lost one on 6, but went the rest of the way with my second-to-last ball.  It’s a win.

I love that! Might have to try it out sometime, might change my usual strategy! Were you thinking about it every hole?

Its an interesting situation, and it brought to mind the stuff from Every Shot Counts.  In analyzing outcomes of tee shots, the optimum for long-term scoring average isn't selecting a shot and aim that results in ZERO balls OB or in a Penalty Area.  Optimal strategy accepts a small percentage of those really poor outcomes.  Surprisingly, optimal means higher handicappers (wider dispersion) should accept a HIGHER number of bad outcomes than optimal for a scratch player.  But that stuff goes out the window when you're down to your last couple of golf balls.
