When you play a short shot, try going for maximum roll. It’s always easier to control your ball on the ground than the air, and by avoiding airtime, you don’t have to think about where the ball will fall or how far it will bounce.
Many golfers try to crush the ball, so it lands close to the target. But unless you’re able to consistently land it exactly where you want, it’s always a better idea to go for the bounce. Sometimes, if you have an obstacle in the way, flying the ball is your only option. Just in case, practice low, rolling chips that use as much of the green as possible whenever you can.
