      I know, I decided to change the order; The “Putt” should be first, the most important part of the three

        In the competition the chip is most important in the first 3 rounds.
        I’ve seen more Chips derail azalea dreams than I can count. Drives off the grid derail many bombers.nut If you cannot chip you cannot move on.

        At Augusta the drive becomes most important because scoring changes from a 3 shots grid-points system where everything counts to a longest drive rank system which clearly favors bombers.
        Bombers who make it to Augusta are in the drivers seat, but it is easier said then done keeping 9 drives in the grid over 3 rounds for the longest hitters just to get there. But once At Augusta all long hitters gotta do is catch 1 of 2 drives and it’s driver seat for them.
