Aiming off means that the ball will be falling away from the hazard as it comes to a stop. This technique allows you to make errors with few consequences. When faced with a hazard such as a bunker placed to the left front of a relatively small green, aiming off is ideal. The idea would be to play a fade (left to right) and target the right side of the flag. Hopefully the ball will roll to the right safely on the green.
