    Posted: 13 February 2006 at 6:51pm

I had a chip shot over the bunker. The lie was very tight and a bit wet. I pulled my 60 degree log wedge and tried to play small chip shot over the bunker. Well I hit a little fat and the ball went into bunker. The bunker shot was a little long. Putted from fringe to 1 m from pin. Then missed the 1m uphill putt. Of course it was going to miss. I wasn't free from my chip shot mistake. Triple bogey. What a bad way to finish the round of golf.

Did I make mistake of choosing wrong club at wet and tight lie? OR I didn't just execute the shot properly. OR Did I do both?

Please give me some advise.

Armuge,

Sometimes, shots like that are just plain tough.  My guess is your only mistake was not being fully committed to the shot you tried.  They say it's better to be decisive and wrong than it is to be unsure and right.  If you just can't get comfortable over a shot, it's probably a good indication that you need to try something safer.

 Along with what CC said, sometimes you screw yourself by shortsiding as you did. The "smart" play is to take your medicine and realize you are not going to knock it close. Sure the meraculous par would have been great, but if you would have taken your bogey you wouldn't still be thinking about it.
  Lob Wedge was ok choice in my book, but i would have been trying to fly it all the way to the pin and let it roll as it wants to. If i have 20 feet left for my par so be it. Not a good situation to get "cute" is all I'm saying.

There is so much sense in leting the ball sometimes go too far.  We always are so afraid of hitting too long that we pick a too short club, make weak putts and leave the ball in the bunker...

I have made a rule for the next season to never leave the putt on the short side of the cup, never ever ! (maybe if I might face the worst downhill putt next, but that happens rarely)Angry

Many thanks guys. "it's better to be decisive and wrong than it is to be unsure and right." This is my take for today.

You could have played a lob shot by opening the face of a SW with some bounce and deliberately hitting it fat.  This way you can make an aggressive swing, still hit it high, and not worry about having to pick it cleanly.
