Deep Rough Chipping On the edge of the green when you encounter a nasty lie in deep rough do not try to help the ball up in the air, it is imperative that you strike the ball with a descending blow, playing the ball slightly back with your weight centered or slightly forward
Short Game Mental Training When practicing your short game play specific shots around the green that you would normally face, keeping score as if you were actually on the course
Causes of Low Shots The loft of any club can be varied by the position of the club handle relative to the ball at impact
