The Right Club: Get creative with club selection!

There is not just one way to get the ball to the hole. When selecting your club, keep these points in mind. Follow the Roll Ratio Formula: A long chip requires more roll, so a 9, 8 or 7 iron is a good choice. If there is little green and you need more height to land the ball softly with little roll, a lob or sand wedge is a good choice.
In this lesson, we’ll talk about your lie, and not the fib you told last week. I am talking about your ball as it lies in the grass.
The key with assessing your lie is to know what you can and cannot do. Different shots require a different club and different lies require modifications in your approach. Follow these guidelines.
