Since most of us are not usually on the green in regulation, it pays to have a few shots in our bag that will help us get closer to the hole from the fringe. It is certainly a lot easier when we have a lot of green to work with, even then we tend to be short or long, but that’s a story for another time.
By far the most challenging shot, from around the fringe, is when we are short sided, grain is against us and we are down hill to the flag. That’s when you see the guys on TV hit incredible shots. But if incredible shots are not in your bag, here is some advice that, with a little practice, should help you get up and down more often.
A great start for John.
Many more lessons to come.
Nice-this also works pretty well with a fairway wood. I am a big fan of using the tool that gets the job done best. It is tempting to think that the only way forward is with a wedge around the green but from a lot of lies (like this one) it is so easy to duff it or thin it across the green and leave yourself in an even worse spot.
