Experienced golfers know that Par 5s represent the best scoring opportunities on the course, so why then are so many of us intimidated by these long holes?  The truth is that from the top professional down to the total beginner, every golfer should look at the par five holes as an opportunity to score.

In this episode of The Golf Podcast hosts Frank & Mike will outline their five favorite tips and strategies for conquering these three shot holes.


Fantasy Preview

An impressive outing by Patrick Reed was enough to top the leaderboard in the first FedExCup event last week, winning with a score of nine-under as he took over the top spot in the standings. The diminished field of 100 players will now set their sights on TPC Boston for the Deutsche Bank Championship in Nortan, Massachusetts. The par-71, 7,297-yard course has been the host for this event since 2003 and has always given up some big scores to the winners. It is also important to note that if you are looking for any golf on Thursday afternoon, you won’t find any on the PGA TOUR as this tournament chooses to start on Friday and finish on Labor Day Monday. Players here will be keeping an eye on the FedExCup standings as they move towards next week where the top-70 head to the BMW Championship.
