2 WHERE’S THE PIN?
As with this shot, on uphill approaches it is often possible to tell if the pin is cut to the left or right of the green but front or back is not so easy. It’s important to ascertain this because knowing your target helps you swing the iron you’ve chosen with commitment. Some golf clubs produce daily pin position charts; if you don’t have one of these, invest in a distance measuring device. If you are still in any doubt, work out a yardage for the centre of the green – taking the upslope into account – and play for that.
