AJ Avoli is the Director of Instruction at the beautiful Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, CA. With over 15 years of experience in golf instruction, he has seen it all when it comes to figuring out a golf course. Whether it’s the first time you are playing a course/hole, there are still some things you need to consider before teeing off! AJ Avoli gives us a great playing lesson while out on the Champions side of the golf course on the risk/reward of hitting a driver off of a unique tee location.
A.J. suggests that Colton should aim for the left side of the fairway and use the wind to his advantage. He also suggests that if Colton hits it too far, it’s not the worst case scenario.
For golfers who hit it right to left, A.J. suggests aiming just inside the fairway line and playing a right to left shot. He encourages Colton to be aggressive and confident in his decision.
