High Lofted Sand Shot

Posted June 16, 2015 in intermediate advanced control feel tips

Sometimes you will have a sand shot where the pin is located close to the sand trap. You need to hit a higher lofted sand shot to give yourself the chance to save par. Make sure to open your stance, play the ball towards your front heel, open the clubface and have the butt of the club pointed to your belly button. Thump the sand upon impact.

Spend some time in your golf facility's short game area practicing this repeatedly at a target, and the move will come more naturally.
