How many Strokes could you Cut off your scores if you could hit the ball high, low, left, or right at will?
How about draws or fades? Or out of deep rough or off hard pan lies? Do windy conditions hurt your scores? These are conditions that we have all faced on the course. They're part of the game, and they're part of what makes golf so tough... and so incredibly satisfying when we can navigate the course effectively.
