Better to have a comeback put with a chance to up&down;, than to leave it short and have to chip again.

Thanks Michi. You are right on the money. Definitely, I feel a lot better with this shot if I accept the comeback putt. Its hard to imagine that the safest route to the hole is farther away, but it works. I made two shots like this in my last outing. Drilled both putts.

The three foot circle is three feet in the back too. ;P

Great to hear that it worked out for you! (For me, it's still indoor putting and long-game training on the range at least for the next month, can't wait to get on the course...)

To update, I think Bunkerputt and The Gill are spot on. A putting motion with the 60 lob wedge works perfect! Ball pops up and clears about 2-3 yards, rolls another 2-3 yards. I'm going for the hole every time. Of course, using the putter should always come first. If I can putt it, I'll putt it. Putting with the hybrid also works if you can trust the consistency of the fringe.

+1    same shot for me. With enough backspin the break is taken out of the first part of the roll. I'm hunting birds with this shot.

Hi I have a question similar to this. I played a new course that was firm where some of my wedges took big first bounces and I rolled just off the green. I am 2 inches into the rough, have 1.5 feet of fairway then 5 feet of green. The last 3 feet are flat, but the 3 feet of green down to my ball is rounded off, so I'm hitting either uphill, or I have to carry that and have 3 feet to work with. The rough is thin, and the soil is really soft so if you catch it fat or try and get under it like I usually do, you'll chunk it 1 foot. I ha this 3 times on the front all from wedges and failed to get up and down every time. So how should I play this, I tried hitting down on it not to hit it fat but never got it to stay near the hole. Thanks, hope that's not confusing

I was in the rough near a pin cut at the edge of the free only 6-7 feet from the hole and greenskeeper seem to allow the grass to grow thicker than usual in the fringe so the entire ball is covered by grass I also did not get up and down. What is frustrating is that seems like an easy shot but it easy to hit to hard and scoot the ball way pass or get too cute chipping and totally mishitting and leaving in the rough Lifting the heel and just popping it out with the toe of the wedge is a good option I tried a couple of different methods today that seem to work. If the ball is deep sometime a pop stroke with a putter or hybrid works well The other method is too belly wedge and hit a deliberate scull with leading edge of the wedge with a putting grip

    • LL had an app for GPS 😃 Those leather seats at LLB were really nice though.
    • For those of us who went on the trip, and who played Mammoth, SV, Lawsonia, and LLB, let's do this: everyone write down your favorite first hole, your favorite second hole, etc. Let's see what the composite course looks like. Say a few words about why each hole is your favorite. Some guides and links to help everyone remember the holes: The Links — The Golf Courses of Lawsonia The Club at Lac La Belle | Powered by Envisage https://static1.squarespace.com/static/576025fa22482e70f0278a4d/t/5cafa7d07817f7c9673f0a6d/1555015644415/MammothDunes+Course+Guide.pdf https://static1.squarespace.com/static/576025fa22482e70f0278a4d/t/5cafb38ce4966b8002e86f9a/1555018646008/Sand+Valley+Course+Guide.pdf
    • This^  A range near me shut down early on a Wednesday because they were mowing the next day and they wanted to get all the balls off the range so the mower didn't hit them. 
    • He's clearly saying that if you hit 11 GIR and shoot 90, you should work on your putting as that is the weak part of your game. A person who hits 11 GIR "should" shoot about 73, so if you're hitting 11 GIR, and you shoot 90, it's likely not your full swing (or "long game") that needs work. So again, just stop. You're missing the point. For a short time, the player should probably focus on his putting. Not 50% in the long-term, but in the short term, sure.
    • Marauders, bogey. The military tie-in stuff was weak, which made the whole story line weak. The American, par. I almost gave this a bogey, too. Normally assassin movies rate highly for me, but this one, meh. He was a gunsmith and an assassin? I don't know. Did he die at the end? He knew he was injured. Mortally so? Whatever. This isn't Butch Cassidy.
