Decision-making on the green

The main three questions most golfers ask themselves during a round are: when should I putt? When should I chip? And when should I pitch. A typical rule of thumb is: putt when you can, chip when you can’t putt and pitch only when you have to.

All three scenario fit different situations accordingly, the trick is to understand what shots to use where. This will improve your decision-making around the green and help you to achieve lower scores you can be proud of.
