Speaker 1: Our shot here, I've got [inaudible 00:00:03] seven yards to my two club draw which is within two paces on the green.
Then I've got 35 yards to the hole.
This is a shot that I practice never.
Okay? So this is something I want you to understand.
How do I know what club to use? This is the ratio drill and I want you to understand this.
What you do is you figure out where your ball lies.
Okay? This is point A.
Where do we want to land it? Well as you remember, 95% of the time we want to land the ball within...
right here, two steps on the green.
So here, I walked this off it was seven steps earlier, and I've got 35.
I didn't want to have you watch me walk all that way.
So here it is.
So 7 steps is divided into 35, 5 times.
Okay? So all I'll have to do is just figure it out.
I just set what my 1:1 ratio is.
If the greens are fast, you're going to use lob which is 1:1.
If you have normal green speed, sand wedge would be 1:1.
So it other words, if it flew seven it would run seven.
Just try to determine this.
So in this case we're going to use sand wedge, but 7 goes into 35, 5 times.
Sand wedge, gap wedge, pitching wedge, nine, eight, but it's slightly uphill so it would be an eight iron.
I'm going to take a seven iron just because of that.
So here's how we can do this.
I've taken a shot that I've never practiced, I've made it something comfortable.
I'm going to hit my normal chip shot here.
Land it right in front of me.
You're going to see that this ball is going to work out to being...
I'll take that.
That's 4 feet, 5 feet maybe.
From 35 yards away.
But again, there's nothing special about this shot.
I'm just trying to land it within my first two shots there.
I've got a shot that I'll never practice, but I'm prepared for it.
So remember wherever it is, even it's closer.
I'm just going to roughly, hypothetically pick a spot so we can do this together.
I'm going to count one, two, three, four, five, we'll go six steps this time.
I'm going to go one, two, three, four, let's say ten okay? So in this case that's where we're trying to go.
Six is divided into ten, one with some left over.
So you just need to determine what club are you using.
That would be sand wedge, gap wedge, right? It's one with some left over so it's between a ballpark between my two clubs, sand wedge or gap wedge.
Well now you just have to determine and ask yourself is this uphill? Is it downhill? This ones a little bit uphill but what I'm going to do, I'm going to take the sand wedge because I'm between it, and I'm going to cheat.
I'm going to follow this one just a little bit farther.
It will roughly work out as you can see, it caught that one just a little bit heavy but it's only 5 feet.
I can still get that up and down.
Use the ratio drill and allow that to choose which club so that you can save par more often and enjoy this game a lot more.
