On a recent episode of “The Charlie Rymer Golf Show” on ESPN, host Charlie Rymer visited Caledonia Golf & Fish Club to showcase several of its notable holes and offer some playing advice along the way. In this segment, Charlie’s taking on the par-5 10th. Check it out!
Nothing beats golf in Myrtle Beach. I’m showing off and playing some of our best courses all while giving you some advice for your game. This is Charlie’s Golf Tips!
The par-5 10th at Caledonia, it’s a three shooter for most golfers on the planet, myself included. The key is to avoid the bunker up the left-hand side of this fairway and pay attention to your layup shot because you want to go a little farther left than you might think.
Now this green, it is super skinny, so it’s really important to give yourself a nice little flip wedge opportunity from the middle of this fairway. And if you can pull off that great little wedge, it’s a really wonderful birdie opportunity. I got a great wedge tip for you. When you have a front hole location, that’s when you want to hit a lob wedge, a lob off, hit it hard. You want to stop quickly to stay near that front hole location.
This is my lob wedge, no good. I’m going with my pitching wedge. What I’m going to do is try and land this ball in the middle of the green, take it in low and let it release to that back hole location. Only adjustment I’m going to make is maybe put it a little bit farther back in my stance than I normally would. Seventy-yard shot, on a flight, maybe 60 yards. Let it land in the middle of the green. Oh. Had that one dancing around the hole right there!
