Golf is a game of history and tradition, but behind all of the rules and etiquette are players out on the course to get away from the stress and pressure of their everyday lives. Partnering with our friends at Skratch, SxS is proud to bring you “The Shank brought to you by Skratch,” a look at the lighter side of the game each week. As the folks at Skratch say, “It’s just golf. Try not to take it so seriously”
We’ve all been there: just off the green and with multiple options facing you for your next shot. What shot should you play? Do you take it up in the air with a little check spin on it? Is it smarter to play the bump and run with a lower-lofted club? What about using a fairway wood or hybrid to get the ball rolling even quicker?

Our friends at Skratch have the answer for you, and it’s “none of the above.” Putting together a compilation of some of the best players to ever play the game, the folks at Skratch enlisted the help of DJ Steve Porter, a pop-culture mashup remixer and producer, to come up with a catchy reminder as to what club you should pull when you’re facing those in-between shots just off of the putting surface.
As the saying goes, “a bad putt is better than a bad chip.” You need to putt it.
