So we have a thread for a lot of different parts of our game, the good the bad and the ugly if you will. But we don't often get to brag about when we've used good course management or played the "smart" shot instead of the hero shot. So here's where you have a chance to tell us about any occasion during round, where you stopped thought over the situation and opted for the "smart" shot or play, and how it turned out. I'll start it off. This morning, missed the green pin high to the left. Pin was literally 4 paces off the left of the green...and that's counting the fringe. Ball was about 5 to 8 feet into pretty deep but manageable rough. Total distance to the pin, less than 20 feet probably possibly 15. My first thought was the 58 degree and try to land it in the fringe and let it trickle down toward the hole. But yeah, we've all been there before, that's a tough little 3 yard shot our of some fairly thick deep rough, huge opportunity to leave it right where it is or skull it 30 yards across the green. I actually stopped thought about it and still played a soft little flop but making sure I landed on the green. Figured if it ran 15 to 20 feet by the pin, I'd still be putting and most likely walk off with no worst than bogey. But take double or worst out of play...i HATE double bogeys. So that's what I did played a confident and slightly too strong little flop that ran about 6 paces past the pin. I had about 18 feet, and little right to left break. But felt I could easily two putt it. Put a nice stroke on it watched it track a bit right and at the last minute dive into the hole for Par!! I felt really good about the thought process and the execution. When you think about it, my chances of making an 18 footer are a hell of a lot higher than trying to get another chip from 12 feet into tap in range to save bogey!! So let's hear your examples of a smart decision and how it played out!
