If you hate 30 yard pitch shots, don’t leave
yourself that shot. It goes hand in hand with
“play within yourself”. For instance you have
250 yards left to a par 5, do you hit a 3 wood
(that has no chance of reaching the green)
or lay up with a 7 iron and leave yourself
a 100 yard full shot. Until you have practiced
that 3 wood shot, don’t think you can just
walk up and hit it. Chances are maybe 1 in 10
that you can get it anywhere near the green.
Know your limitations.
