In a playoff at the Northern Trust Open, Bill Haas
found himself just off the green at Riviera's famed short par-4 10th. But with a treacherous back pin position and with his opponents (Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley) yet to hit their second shots, Haas took bogey out of play by playing away from the hole with his pitch. Moments later, he looked like a genius when he drained a 43-foot birdie putt
for the win. Of course, average golfers can't count on such heroics, but they can still benefit from adding a similar dose of discipline to their games.
