Todays top tip!

Working with CompuSport, a biomechanical research firm, I studied 30 PGA Tour pros hitting shots inside 100 yards. From 25 yards and in, they consistently landed the ball a quarter of the way from the front edge of the green to the flag. So, if the hole was eight paces from the front, they dropped the ball two paces on.When they needed more or less flight, the pros changed clubs but kept the landing spot a quarter of the way on. If the green sloped away, they took a more lofted club and used the extra height to counter the faster surface. If the green ran uphill, they used a less lofted club for a hotter roll. But 25 percent was the Tour's golden rule.
