The soft ground lets us really attack the flagstick. However, we’re coming to a time in the year when the ground is harder and this simply isn’t possible. So, how do we deal with that? What changes do we need to make?
The place to start is with your ‘landing spot’; the place you want to land the ball. We know that chips onto a firm green will roll more and that a high-lofted wedge will stop faster than a 7-iron, so consider these factors when choosing your landing spot. Simple, but effective.
This is just dipping a toe in the water, of course, and there’s so much more to think about before hitting your shot. If you struggle to get up-and-down around the greens, maybe it's time to book in for a one-to-one short game lesson?
