Should I putt from here?
Should I fly it to the hole or bump and run it? What club shot I bump and run it with?
What is the right shot?
The answer is very simple. Hit the shot you are comfortable with.
No amount of any expert telling you what the “right shot” is, will change the fact that it doesn’t fit your eye or feel…or nerves in that particular situation. Maybe the lie doesn’t make you comfortable to hit that shot. Maybe there is a slope or water near the hole.
The object is not what is the right shot, or which shot can you pull off a miracle every 20 and lay the sod over the other 19, or which shot Tiger would play from there.
You know your game, if you hit 10 balls from that spot, which shot is going to produce the best total distance.
In other words, I would rather putt from a little bit of a thin lie in the fringe and guarantee all 10 within 3 feet, versus hitting the “correct shot” because that shot makes me a little nervy and I might chunk one out of 10…or one out of 5 under pressure.
Play the shot that you are comfortable with even though you saw Dave Pelz tell you the “right way” to hit it was different.
It also doesn’t make your way wrong because Johnny Miller criticized some guy for playing it that way after he didn’t hit it within 6 inches. Because that was the way that guy was comfortable playing it and he probably won the tournament by 5 because he was doing things the way he was comfortable, instead of the “right way.”
