You've heard the expression drive for show and putt for dough. This is based on the belief that a player who has a good short game is the better player overall.

Horace Hutchinson reminds us that, "Golfers are very fond of insisting, and with great justice, that the game is not won by the driver. It is the short game - the approaching and putting - that wins the match. Nevertheless, despite the truth of this, if there were no driving there would be very little golf."

In pasture golf as in traditional golf, you really do better if you practice up on every facet of the game. You can argue all day whether good drives, good chips or good putts make the better game. Really, does it matter? Without any of these three, your game probably can be found in the building pictured right.
