 I will discuss how to hit a proper shot through a gap, similar to how Jon Rahm hit his shot through a gap last weekend at the Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin. TX.  

The three big keys that I need to play a low punch shot.  In this case, I have the added task of keeping the ball between the two trees.

1. Play the ball position off the middle of the stance.

Because I also need to keep this shot low and carry more than 120 yards, I have selected a 2 hybrid.  I could also have selected a 4 iron, but I felt more confident keeping it low with the 2.

2. Make sure to extend down the line.

In my pre-shot routine, I will rehearse, keeping the club online toward the target as long as I can.  This will ensure that I keep the ball threaded through the trees.

3. Stay Down.

No Peeking!  One of the biggest moves that ruin a shot is anxiety! Or in the case of a lot of golfers – lack of trust!  Want to have trust?  Practice this shot regularly.  In my practice sessions, I always include some low, high, fade and draw shots.  Realy makes the practice fun!
