Short Game Basics - L3

Before choosing which club you plan to use, remember L3. L3 stands for lie, landing and length.

Look at what kind of lie you have. Is the ball sitting up, buried or resting on a hard surface with little or no grass? Then decide on a spot on the green that you want to land the ball. Finally, determine the length you want the ball to roll to the hole. Lie, landing, length!

Determining your L3 will help you pick the right club for the job.
