Over the last week, I've played 4 rounds. All of them for tournaments. I've found myself with this scenario a number of times and have gone back and forth with it. Ultimately, I think it's a comfort thing... but, I was wondering what you'd do.
You hit a shot to a front pin but it comes up a little short. You're 5 feet from the front of the green in the fairway. The pin is 6 paces on. Providing there isn't anything that's going to FORCE you to hit a specific shot (such as spotty patches between the ball and the hole)... what shot do you prefer?
I'll go first:
A few weeks ago, I had a lot of confidence in my short game. I felt good taking my 56 degree wedge and clipping it from the tight lie and having it finish within 3 feet of the hole. Then... I lost that shot and began blading the shot running it 20 feet by. So, now I'm back to putting the ball from that position. The trouble is that the greens I play on are very inconsistent, so I'm not leaving myself easy putts afterwards. So... now, it's back to the practice green to re-teach myself that little chip.
Anyway... what do you do?
