Try a fairway wood to improve consistency and you won't lose too much distance. IRON PLAY Take more club than usual and swing easy to reduce spin and help keep it on line. Be careful to grade your lie. SHORT GAMEUse a rescue club or fairway wood on temporary greens and putt how you would normally. Remember, a chip and run shot reduces the chances of miss-hits and unpredictable bounces, and a lob wedge can be very useful in wet sand.
