Golf Tip – Flop Shot

October 10, 2015 Posted by Matt

flop shotIf your ball lands in heavy rough near the green, do not try a normal pitch or chip shot.  The best way to get the ball up and out of the rough is a flop shot.  Open the face of your most lofted wedge so it sits almost flat on the ground.  Make a long, slow backswing and through swing.  Keep your hands still so the face stays open and your hands do not shut down the face.  The club should slide under the ball as it picks up speed through impact.  Grip the handle lightly, and let the club do the work of getting the ball into the air.
