Bump And Run, Pitch Or Putt
When confronted with your ball just off the green on closely mowed grass most players are encouraged to use the putter first. If you can't use the putter then consider hitting a pitch shot. If you can't do that you may be forced to hit a shot that requires you to keep the ball low, bounce once and then release to the flag.
