Putting With Loft

If you are looking for a simple approach to your short game, try 'putting with loft'.  If your relationship with the lob wedge is on the rocks, consider trying a 7, 8 or 9 iron when you are in near proximity of the green.  Use the same address fundamentals you would when using a putter. Grip down on the iron and allow your arms to hang down in an effort to create a pendulum motion. Place the golf ball in the middle of your stance and use a putting stroke (no wrist and keep your body tight). This will leave your opponents scratching their heads and reaching for their wallet while you add a little loft to your smile.
