Fast Greens

I hate fast greens. I don't play on them enough to be comfortable putting on them and what's even worse, I've found even my short game becomes very tentative when I'm confronted with such surfaces. The delicate chips and pitches around the greens become that much harder when you're afraid your ball is going to take off and run forever when it does finally hit the green. Give me 8-9 on the stimpmeter and I'm a happy golfer. Anything more and I'm nearly paralyzed with the fear of an embarassing 12-foot comebacker for par.
