    Another way, if it’s a long carry, is to chip down to the forward tee and play over with about three clubs less. Easy bogey.

    Holes like the one in this video, though, are stupid. I would never play on a course that had one.

      It’s a promo series for Tom’s new home Punta Mita. GWRX tends to boost their contributors.

    I dont have this problem because I don’t travel to dumps like Mexico. You will get drugged and your clubs stolen before you reach this hole anyways.

      Based on your ignorant comment I’d say the chances are high you don’t travel very far beyond your fly over state trailer park.

        You got suckered. Why even respond? He even created his userID to stir the pot. These aren’t his real opinions, he just wanted to get your reaction.

        Hawaii is so much better than Mexico. Who goes to Mexico besides drunk college kids?

      I will never ever vacation in murderous Mexico again. It’s a narco state feeding U.S. druggies. Stay away, it’s dangerous!!
