Save Two Strokes With This Provisional Ball Trick

“Ball Announcement Strategy,” or B.A.S, is an area of the game that a lot of so-called top-100 instructors don’t focus on, but it’s one that can have a massive impact on your score.

When telling your group that you think your first ball is in, but you’re going to hit a provisional, announce a second ball’s characteristics, but actually play an identical ball as your first one, hitting it strategically down a similar line. When you find that ball in play, you’ve saved yourself two strokes and your group is none the wiser.
