We will talk about an addition to your short game arsenal in this month’s golf tip.  This is a good alternative when the pitch shot won’t do. 

The Secret.

The secret is in the wrist of the lower hand.  This must remain cupped throughout the entire shot, leaving the clubface facing the sky at the end of the follow-through.  As my friend and mentor, Phil Ritson, said, “You can balance a glass of water on the clubface at the end of the shot.

The Method.

Start the backswing with a fairly quick wrist hinge, cupping the back of the lower hand.  When you start the downswing, all movements should be on the left side.  The moment you start the downswing with the arms, you will flip the club at impact.  Ensure the left side keeps moving with all your weight finishing on the front leg and the cupping of the wrist still intact. Your belt buckle should finish all the way through to the target!
