When you miss your putts should end up 17 inches past the hole. If you roll them faster you’ll suffer more lip-outs. Roll them slower and the ball will be knocked off line by imperfections (footprints pitch marks etc.) in the green.
I attempted this shot during my fall visit to Shinnecock. I softly slipped a wide-open 64-degree wedge under the ball landing the shot just three feet in front of my lie. I played this shot as well as I could’ve played it.
We all have different stroke mechanics to say nothing about hand sizes and body rhythms so the best grip for you may well be different from anyone else’s. That’s fine. But before you start tinkering take a look at the photos below.
