Okay, so you hit the ball about 20 feet from the pin, how do you handle this situation? Right now, I usually get an iron [7 or 8 iron] and have my hands holding the club so that the club head is behind my wrists. I come down onto the ball with a putter like swing, not sure if that's making sense. Anyway the club head hits the ball and it pops up into the air a little with a 6 or 7' roll maybe.
I have a buddy that gets a sandwedge and just pivots [no arm swinging] his wrists to pop the ball into the air and land [hopefully] on the green. Just curious what other techniques are out there. My tee time is at 11:30am and I figured I'd get there an hour early to practice my short game.
