How To Respond To Different Shots From 100 Yards And In (Video)

One of the great things about the show game is the amount of variety shots that you are going to be faced with. When you are getting around the greens, when you are 100 yards in from the pin, there are so many different types of shot that you are going to be able to play. Now to make sure you do that successfully, you need to able to understand about what is going on the green, what is happening before the green, what is happening around the green, the different slopes, the different winds. It’s all about judging these things before you hit the shot. So for example I used an example in last video about slope we went from front to -- went back to front, and actually hitting beyond the pin would leave a downhill difficult.

You can kind of go into that a little bit more, because let’s say I had that 60-yard-shot, the pin was in middle -- no, the pin was a little bit safer if it was in front. So the green slope from back to front the pin was near the front, but then there was a big old bunker right before the green. Now normally, what I’d like to do with that type of shot, is take in a little bit lower, try and picture it around the front of the green, and get it skipping up towards the hole. Try and get in there or leave myself just below. However if there's a big bunker on the front of the green that doesn’t become an option, so what I’ve done, like certain previous videos, I’ve practiced all my different swing lengths, and I know that my three-quarter some wedge for example, would go 60 yards as well. So I looked at the situation, I said, "Okay there's a big bunker along the front that pin is a different I can’t skip it in. So I’m going to tame my sandwich 40 higher, get it over the bunker and try and get it settling near the pin." Thinking like that is just one kind of small example, there are so many ways you can think about this altering trajectory, altering fly getting skipping around different slopes. But like I said you're only going to be able to do this if you know your wedge distances. If you have control over the amount of power you put into shots, if you have amount of control over the distances that hit certain shots, you're going to be able to look at different points on the green and say, "I’m going to land it there, I’m going to land it here, I’m going to try and get it landing within that zone." So if you are faced with those shot of 100 yards and then you should avoid on the practice and then you can assess the situation on an ongoing basis, but always look the way you are going to be landing it, always look at the place where you want to leave the easy part, and always try to assess the dangers, and you should find a little bit more success from these type of distances.
