Amateur players are too beholden to the par that is on their scorecard instead of embracing their own personal par. Using your handicap, find the holes on the scorecard that you get a stroke on and play them as such.

Now, a long par-4 that would make you want to pull a club that can get you into trouble turns into a short par-5 that will allow you to play the course to a par that suits your game.
