It’s important that you determine where you’d like to land the ball and how far you’d like it roll. You should always consider the highest percentage shot and landing the ball on or near the green will help that happen. The highest percentage shot is usually the simplest shot. 

When striking the ball at a shorter distance, you are more likely to choke up on the club instead of your normal full swing. Be sure to narrow your stance and stand closer to the ball. Visualize the shot you’re about to take and take a couple of practice swings to gauge the feel of the shot. When ready, your club should be swung with your arms and shoulders and slight wrist break.
