Golf Tip – Short Approach

short approachHow do you hit a short approach shot into a strong wind?  If you have a normal length shot but the wind is in your face, consider putting your wedge back in the bag.  Take out a nine or eight iron out and swing easy.  Play the ball in the middle of your stance and make a crisp swing.  The ball will fly low with little backspin.  Try to land the ball just short of the green, and let it release onto the putting surface.  Try this method for your short approach shots and you’ll eliminate the guesswork out of hitting a high shot with a lot of backspin.
