The Knockdown Shot
April 5, 2010 by Admin
Take one or two extra clubs than the shot calls for (if it calls for a 7-iron, use a 6 or 5-iron). Use an open stance at address, aiming slightly left of target (right-handers). Play the ball back in your stance nearer your right heel than the center point. Choke down, angle your hands forward and maintain a firm grip on the club. Use a three-quarter swing (to shoulder height). Pull down and through the impact zone with your left arm and hand. Restrict your follow-through with your clubface pointing towards your target. The ball will fly low and straight with much more roll than a typical shot.
