I think the hero shots need to be looked at individually and calculated based on your ability to hit that shot. I can work the ball both ways but it's much easier for me to hit a high cut vs. a high draw so I will be more likely to attempt the cut shot over the draw. The other thing to consider is the penalty for missing this shot. If it leads to OB, a hazard, or being even further in the trees then it may not be worth it. No if it just means being offline but still having a shot at the green it could be worth the risk depending on your ability to pull it off. Knowing when you can go for it and when to take your medicine can be a difference of several shots.But I’m the hero that Gotham needs!
And the change int he handicap system going to 100% of your low 8 over 20 vs the old way of 95% of your low 10 of 20 definitely has contributed to lowering my index. The soft cap of max of 3 over your low for the last year means it won't be going up much anytime soon if my play does slide.The handicap system rewards players(if you want a lower cap) that are erratic compared to their index. You can shoot 75 or 90 compared to someone that is consistently in the low 80s. Take more chances when you feel comfortable doing it.
