Tip From the Archives

High Apron

Problem

You have a slight hill to cross over before the ball can reach the green.

Cure

Use the loft of your hybrid to your advantage and make a putting style stroke with it. It will make the shot easier to execute than a chip.

Therapy

Choke down on the grip and hold the hybrid more upright so it feels a little more like a putter. Take a couple of practice swings in nearby grass and lie while imagining that you have a putter in our hand. Get a good feel for the proper length of a stroke to make for the distance you need before setting up to the ball.
