Lately I've been having problems when I end up in areas where the grass is thin. The muni where I play the most has several areas where they have problems keeping grass and I always seem to find these spots. Shots where I can take a full swing it's usually not a problem, it's the touch shots that get bladed/chili dipped. And once I make a bad shot it gets in my head for the rest of the day and leads to several more bad shots. These shot are usually under 50yds and I've tried using anything from a Sw to a 7-iron and somtimes the shot is descent , but more times than not they aren't.
I've got a lesson this morning and I'm going to ask about this, but how do you guys play this shot? Any tips?
