"Affordabili-TEES'' pro Bryan Huff: Mastering par-3s

   You're playing well when you step into the tee box on the par-3 11th hole.
   At 158 yards, the shot is demanding rather than intimidating. You don't want to miss right because of sand traps and fall-off to a waste area. There is some room to miss left, but not much.
   Take care of business on the tee shot, and you're on to the next hole with a 3 or 4 on the scorecard and your hopes for a respectable round intact. Make a critical mistake on this hole, and you walk away with a double-bogey or worse and your mindset jumbled.
   Par-3s are, "Affordabili-TEES'' pro Bryan Huff tells us, "round-makers or round-breakers.''
   Huff is one of the area's best golf instructors and the head professional at StoneWater Golf Club in Highland Heights.
