    The Fairway: [faer-wai]: “An unfamiliar tract of closely mown grass running directly from tee to the green. Your ball can usually be found immediately to the left or right of it in the trees.”

    A quick tip for this week: When faced with a downhill stance, ensure the ball is closer to the back of your stance. This will ensure better contact, instead the “OLD” topping the ball routine.
