Alright I got a six iron here today.
00:09
We got about a 10 to 15 mile an hour cross wind it's
00:12
kind of in and from the right.
00:14
Going through a warm up session I'd be trying to hit
00:16
some different shots obviously the main goal is just to kind
00:18
of get loose and get through the warmup.
00:20
But I also am trying to hit some different shots
00:22
just so I, I kind of get comfortable and I get used to
00:26
you know hit some low, hit some high,
00:27
just because when you get on the course you have to hit
00:29
more than one shot.
00:30
Or at least I like to.
00:31
So say you know you get a firm green, Augusta or U.S. Open
00:35
and you know I need to fire one up in the air.
00:38
So this one I'm gonna try to just hit, hit way up
00:41
in the air and try to get it to land soft on a firm green.
