Hitting a really low golf shot!

Today is June 19th, 2018 and we present Hitting a really low golf shot!  Trouble Shot Tuesday #93.  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole, Director of Instruction and Master Professional at the Mel Sole Golf School headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

Hitting a really low golf shot!

Most higher handicap golfers do not seem to have the ability to hit a really low golf shot.  If they get in the trees and a low shot is required, they tend to hit the ball too high and get caught up in the branches.  Learning to hit a low shot is not hard.  Like every other shot in golf, it does take some practice.  However, once you get the correct technique, it is a really fun shot to practice.

The Method!

Take a fairly low lofted club like a 4 or 5 iron.  Play the ball in the middle of your stance.  Don’t play the ball too far back as this delofts the club and you will end up hitting the shot too low and not get any distance.  Have a forward shaft lean with the butt of the club level with your lead thigh.  This is important!  After that, just play a normal shot making sure you trust the club to do the work.  Finish the swing with the arms extended in front of you to get the feeling of driving the ball forward!

This shot, along with hitting high shots, (next weeks tip) draw shots and fades makes your practice session fun.  If you have a clear idea of how to hit these shots you will be more willing to try them out on the course.  Practice with a friend and see who can hit the lowest, highest or biggest slice or hook!  Enjoy yourself!
