from back to front, with a few flat zones for pin placement options.
If the pin is at the front, then just short of the green is a great
place to be. You can easily two putt from the fringe or chip and putt
from the fairway. If you are above the hole, you are likely to either
putt off the green down to the fairway (where the smart guys
are! :-) ) or worse, lose your nerve and leave your putt short and
still above the hole which can be an easy 4-putt result.
If the pin is at the back of the long green (220 yards) I don't mind
