  1. navitello added a post in a topic Need help choosing the correct shot shape.   

    I guess my problem is staying committed to the shot because I think maybe the other shape is the higher percentage shot.  As obvious as it seems, maybe hitting it straight is the best for me right now.  I need to pay more attention to my misses and go from there.

    Thanks again all

    Need help choosing the correct shot shape.
    Can someone help me out on weather I should fade towards a hazard or draw away from them?

    Example:  On a 200yd Par 3 with water on the right of the green, should I as a righty, start the ball left and have it fade in? Or start the ball at the water and draw it back to the green?

    I'm just trying to get a feel for the correct strategy.
