I love the thrill of a blind shot. Such holes require us to trust our instincts and play without seeing the target. They create confrontation in the golfer. It’s hard to know what result you’ll find over the next hill, but that reality breeds excitement. It takes great confidence to choose a line and send the ball out of sight. Hope plays a role too. Cresting the knoll to discover a desirable finish is one of golf’s great and simple pleasures. Revealing that having faith is often better than knowing.
