Have you ever ever walked as much as your ball and located it laying like it’s in Photograph 1? The dreaded buried lie.
UGH! When you occur to be in Florida or Hawaii and this ball is sitting in Bermuda tough, your degree of problem simply obtained raised up a notch greater.
What do you do when this occurs to you and how will you get out of it?
It isn’t as arduous you would possibly suppose. At all times use your sand wedge. NEVER use a lob wedge. When you don’t personal a sand wedge, a niche wedge will work. Play the golf ball WAY again in your again foot (for proper handed gamers), as I’m doing in Photograph 2. You’ll have a little bit of an open stance (entrance foot pulled again). Your weight ought to lead ahead. This makes the shaft of the membership level in entrance of the ball, which takes loft off the membership.
I wish to grip down on the shaft a bit of (Photograph 3). It helps me really feel like I’ve extra management. Doing it’s as much as you. Maintaining all of your weight in your entrance foot, use 99 p.c wrists and decide the membership head up and out instantly, as I’m doing in Photograph 4. You’ll really feel like you’re about to hammer a nail. Hinge up and chop down. You need the membership head to return down as near the ball as potential. DO NOT attempt to hit the grass behind the ball. When you do, you’ll hit it actually fats.
Once more, you are attempting to get the membership head to hit as near the ball as potential. Once you do that, the ball will come out of the tough instantly (Photograph 5). When it hits the inexperienced, it is going to take one hop, and virtually skid. It comes out very delicate and won’t roll over the inexperienced.
Belief me, this could be the best shot you ever be taught to hit. It actually works.
