Do You Always Aim At Right and Left Edge Pins
Do you always aim at right and left edge pins?
Based on current data, if you Do You Always Aim At Right and Left Edge Pins you will miss around 30% of your shots off the green.
But…if you aim for the middle of the green only 10% will be off the green!
Hummm…30% versus 10% which would you prefer?
I’m betting your choice would be the 10%.
So why would a player aim at those edge pins? Probably because they THINK that’s the play.
Sure, the best players in the world go flag hunting all day, but they ARE the best players in the world and they know how to control their golf ball.
But, there are times that they play away from the flag.
Because sometimes the pin is in such a location that it makes for a difficult putt so they will hit their approach shot to a location that gives them the straightest putt, or the zero line.
Now think about that.
Would you rather have a 10 footer that has 2 feet of break or a 15 footer that has NO break?
Again, the odds are in your favor with the straight one.
One of the things I constantly work on with my players is setting up their approach shots to end up at the “zero line”.
The “zero line” is the location that gives you a straight putt.
If you apply this strategy to your game you just might be surprised…and pleasantly at that! I urge you to examine your game and see how you can drop strokes with just a few simple course management adjustments.
As the old NIKE saying goes, “Just Do It!”
It’s your game and your choices…make them wisely!
