Uphill putts are easier so it is better to go for the hole and have a 6 or 7 footer back than have 4 feet left downhill. In your case just hit a strong putt and if it goes off it should be ok still

Or, since I was so far away on the green, try pitching closer to the hole before I putted? jaaanson


I really wouldn't try that. Tho it's allowable, speaking as a golf course maint. employee, I'd have a fit if I saw someone pull out a wedge on the green and take a huge divot out of our carefully maintained greens. Wink

Personally, like m.nugent replied, I'd give it a run at the hole, hope to lag it close, and worst case scenario you have an uphill putt back at it that you can be aggressive with.

Another option would have been to use an 8-iron or 6-iron like a putter. You can generally hit it farther while maintaining the control you have with your putter. If it rolls too far, like M.Nugent said. uphill is better. Go for it.
