Part of what makes golf so difficult and, at times, frustrating is the mental gymnastics one must go through when trying to hit a shot. 

Should I go high or low, draw or fade? 

When we make the wrong decision, there isn’t a much worse feeling in the game than knowing we spent an unnecessary stroke.

Take that tough decision out of your hands when it comes to chipping or putting from just off the green. Pull putter whenever possible and know that the ball is traveling at its top speed just off the club, which will make the fringe or rough immediately in your path have a less-than-expected effect on the ball’s speed.
