MilF Tips: TPC at Valleywood #3

NOTE: This is the third installment of a series created for KAR's Expanded MilF Hype Program. Each week, we will present a breakdown of one hole on the MilF's home course: the majestic and hallowed TPC at Valleywood. Print them out and collect them all to make a groovy "course book" just like the pros use!

VALLEYWOOD #3
"Bender"


The scorecard lists #3 as 393 yards, 370 from the MilF tees, but it plays much longer. That is because its fairway features a 90-degree dogleg with a large stand of mature oak trees delineating the left-side out-of-bounds. It is possible to "cut the corner" off the tee. The task, however is difficult since you have to get the ball up in a hurry and still have enough ass behind your drive to not only carry the woods, but to also clear the wide swath of rough peppered with maple saplings on the other side. If you've got enough muscle to hit a 5 or 7-wood that high and that far, more power to you. Those of us who know better cede the extra 30 yards we'd get from that high-risk, dubious-reward play and hit an nice 4 iron to the corner, hugging the left side as closely as possible.

From there you'll have anywhere from 170 to 200 (depending on how well you hug the left side or hit a bitchin' draw) left to yet another two-tiered green. The fairway slopes downward toward the hole for the second shot, culminating in a green that slopes steeply upward. Because of this, you may even be able to use a club one shorter than you normally would from the same distance. Beware, however: you do not want to put your approach above the hole on this one. If the pin's in front and you're putting from the back (top tier) of the green, take along your chipping wedge. You'll likely need it after your first putt.

FOOT'S SECRET TIP: The deep woods on the left side of the fairway running from the tee box to the corner of the dogleg is a nice, private and secluded place to urinate. If you feel like you have to go, by all means, go here.
