OVERVIEW

Par 4s come in all different shapes and sizes, but the usual strategy is to pull driver and hit it as far as you can down the middle. Distance is always nice, but the key to playing par 4s is giving yourself a good angle to the pin on your second shot. In this video, Dean Reinmuth explains the best ways to position your tee shot, play into the green and walk away with a good score.
