Playing Aggressive V.S. Playing Conservative: Which is best for me?

Hey everyone!!

I would first like to apologize for not getting my post out on Monday like I promised.  I was busy this weekend with my little sisters graduation and was unable to find the time to write a high quality post for you to enjoy.

But I have a GREAT post ready for you today and I hope that you all enjoy it and give it a like.

This weeks topic is one that is basically the Pepsi vs Coke debate of the golf world.  That is playing aggressive vs playing conservative.

Do you tend to hit lots of “all or nothing” shots? Or try to fly the hazard when you might just barely have enough distance to get there?  If you answered yes to these then congratulations, your an aggressive player.


Do you prefer to punch out and ensure that your next shot will give you a better shot at the green? Or do you Layup on par 5’s when you think there is a slim chance that you might be able to get on the green in two? If you answered yes to these then congratulations, your a conservative player.

Now let me set the record straight…

Neither of these styles are better than the other.  There just different.

Playing conservative is best when your an accuracy or finesse player.  Ensuring that you can get the ball to spots that can allow you to put your next close and score is the name of the game when your a conservative player.

Playing aggressive is best when your a distance hitter.  Being able to launch the ball and reach the green in two on a par 5 is the name of the game for aggressive players.

So which do I recommend?  Personally I recommended a good mix of both types.  One key skill to develop to take your game to the next level is being able to recognize what type of play is required for the situation that you’re in.

I hope that you enjoyed today’s post.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all of the ladies out there a late happy Women’s Golf Day.  I hope that you all were able to enjoy the day and play some golf.  Women in golf are a very important part of the golfing community and are helping to grow and diversify the game.

I hope you all have a great rest of the week and hope that you can comeback on Monday for our next post.

    This was a great post about being either a conservative or an aggressive player. I believe having a little bit of both is key to becoming a strategic golfer. I myself am in the process of learning golf, and I believe it’s very challenging if you don’t have aggression or if you aren’t conservative. I look forward to your next post!!
