Stop com­ing up short on up­hill shots.

In the 1992 Masters, Fred Cou­ples did the un­think­able. Lead­ing in the fi­nal round, he hit his tee shot short of the green on the treach­er­ous par-3 12th hole. De­fy­ing grav­ity, his ball stayed on the bank in­stead of rolling into Rae’s Creek. He then had a del­i­cate shot back up the hill. With his right foot al­most in the wa­ter, he popped the ball onto the green, saved par and went on to win his only ma­jor ti­tle.
