git: Your branch and 'origin/master' have diverged - how to throw away local commits?

I have the following message in git:

# Your branch and 'origin/master' have diverged,
# and have 3 and 8 different commits each, respectively.
# (use "git pull" to merge the remote branch into yours)


I would like to throw away the 3 local commits, and pull the 8 remote commits at origin/master.

(Merging is going to be too difficult, I'd rather make the 3 local commits again once master is up to date.)

How can I do this?

Answer
git fetch origin
git reset --hard origin/master
