We head to Valley Green Golf Course in York County for the Sutliff Chevrolet FOX43 Golf Tip of the Week.
Brian Davis, Valley Green Pro
Today we are working on high lofted shots around the green. A lot of times when you are out on the golf course, you could get short sighted. That means the pin will be somewhat close to you and the green will be running away. Its a very hard shot to get up and down. Today, we will learn how to get that up and down and knock some strokes off your score.
Approach the ball with a slightly open stance and then you open the club face slightly as well. The key is to keep your left arm straight or your lead arm for your lefties. So there is no wrist. All you have to do is rock your shoulders. Nice high lofted shot. Oh baby, how easy is that?
The main thing you want to remember is hitting a high lofted shot or any wedge around the green is no wrists so right here, if you are fundamentally sound with the lead arm straight, rock the shoulders. Hit a nice high lofted shot and trickle it down there close to the pin.
So to the guys and girls out there. If you stick to the fundamentals, a lot more of this will be happening to you.
