The Lie

It’s all about the lie. In golf, as in life.

Forget about grabbing the 60 degree wedge. Please. Never mind the distance. It’s all about your lie.

Been caddying since I was 17. I’m 53 now. Way too many golfers pay way too much attention to distance. Pulling out the 60, without regard to the lie, is usually the quickest path to the, “what am I DOING” blurt which invariably follows every either thinned, skulled, t-boned, bladed, or chunked shot.

Instead, most golfers would do better to hit a higher percentage pitch and run shot with a less-lofted club.
