Tree in Your Way

hybridApril 28, 2015 Posted by Matt

Don’t let a restricted swing hold you back.  If you find your ball near a tree in your way or another obstacle that will no allow you a free and full swing, you need to make an adjustment.  Rather than trying to make a mini golf swing that will lack the force to get your ball back into play, try this method.  Make a short backswing and then accelerate into the ball and stop the club right at impact.  Feel as if you are driving a hammer into a nail.  The ball will scoot out of the trouble, and your club will not get caught up in the tree or bushes because you used the short and powerful swing.
