Flop Shot

Posted June 09, 2015 in crossover tips advanced intermediate

When your ball misses the green on the side closer to the pin, this is referred to as short-siding yourself. This calls for a “flop shot”. To execute a flop shot, follow these steps :

  1. Open your stance and clubface. Your front foot should be open and your hips along with your lower body should face the target. An open clubface will allow you to see the grooves on the club better, and they should point upward rather than at the ball.
  2. Once your setup is complete, hinge your wrists as you swing back and then allow the club to drop and slide underneath the ball. Keep your wrists loose and let them re-hinge on the follow through.
