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

    • Mucked around for years playing every few years. Busted my knee and was told golf was OK so went down to a social comp. First round 118 with (somehow) a birdie on 18.
    • I think about 130, I have good hand eye coordination so improved quite quickly as I was a good Hockey player. 
    • Shot an 80 Saturday. This upcoming Wednesday would make a month since playing last. New job and change in the routine and golf has taken a back seat. I was streaky. Had some really good stretches and a couple mental breaks. Short game wasn’t good which is expected.   opened up double at one and a bogey at 2. No surprise there. 3 i blistered one off the tee and hit my wedge to 6 inches for a tap in. At 4 I blister another and hit another pretty good approach to 6 feet. Tried to Kevin Na the putt since I did think I made it. Stayed out on the high side tho. Still after a 2 putt par at 5 I’m 2 over after that awful start. Heard some really mediocre cursing while I was addressing my tee shot at 6. Was laughable that some guy yelled Jesus Christmas or something like that and I should have backed off. Ended up worm burning a short drive and hybrid layup to awkward yardage led to double at 6 then another double at 8 hurt. Ho hum par at 8 and 9 for a 6 over front: 3 doubles. I usually don’t make doubles. Seldom 3 in 9. Back was nothing spectacular: pars at 10-11. Bogeys at 12-13. Par at 14. 15-16 I was tired and could feel it. Still doesn’t excuse a 3 putt and then a bogey from a tee shot that left me 70 in. Pars at 17-18. There is some positive things to take from that round given the layoff I guess/
    • Day 49: Worked on priority piece, mostly slow rehearsals, and hit 6 balls with 7-iron. Also did short game COVID-19 day 6/7 drills. 
    • Things I learned on my first 18... If there's a group playing behind you and you feel like your rushing because of it, it's better to let them play through.  [After I did that, I landed my next 3 tee shots on the green (3 chances for birdie and 3 chances at par... missed all six shots 🤪). I need to work on my putting and chipping.  This is where I can really lower my score.
