Don’t Get Tricked By Nasty Wet Lies Around The Green

Playing in the fall or winter, we’re faced with these tricky and nasty lies around the green where the ball is sitting in a wet, muddy patch. To play this shot, you need to build in an insurance policy, so use the right club.

Your hybrid has a nice wide sole so you can’t mishit it — the club is going to skid. Playing it like a putt, grip well down the shaft, move the ball back a bit in your stance and get your weight to your lead side while trying to use a putting stroke. The ball takes off skipping through the wet terrain, and it should save you a couple of shots per round.
