## What It Takes: Dusty Trail

# Hitting that -30 is Impossible Right? Wrong! We Lay Out The Perfect Round Going Hole-by-Hole

We've featured a handful of players in the past month that have been skilled and fortunate enough to hit an elusive -30 in PowerPutt. On the surface, this looks like a near impossible feat, but it's obvious that some of the game's most committed players are figuring it out.

To hit 30-under you need to be almost perfect throughout your round, but not completely perfect. Taking advantage of easier holes is key and you have to avoid finding yourself in any trouble whatsoever.

To showcase exactly how someone might hit this magic number, we've laid out a realistic way to maneuver through a round to tackle this feat. Taken into consideration was the par for that hole, the difficulty, and the likelihood of a hole-in-one.

We start our series off with Dusty Trail, a course that many might consider to be the easiest of the three PowerPutt courses. Not so simple when you're going for that –30.
