How to Hit Your Golf Shot Over Trees
Ok, so during my round of golf I have hit my tee shot and I am in the fairway. Unfortunately it is the wrong fairway to be in. I am faced with a situation where I have to go up over these trees. That is my only option. My thought process is I have to make sure of a couple of things.
- Number one, my first and foremost goal is I have to make sure I choose the right club to get up over this tree. That is the first goal.
- The second goal is I have to clear the forest which is about 40 or 50 yards deep.
- The third thing Is I want to get it back out into play in one shot. I am not quite so concerned with where the green is right now, I just have to make sure that I get over these trees. Remember in the other tips that I have talked about, I don't want to hit any trees as I am trying to get out of trouble.
Make Solid Contact to Get the Golf Ball into the Air Quickly
The way that I look at this shot, it looks like I can get a pitching wedge, it should not be choose a club and I think I can get it over, I know I can get a pitching wedge over this tree. I am going to hit my pitching wedge and I know I can clear the forest as well. The one focus I am going to have is I am going to make sure I make solid contact with the golf ball and I follow through all the way with a big follow through so I can get the ball up in the air. Alright. I am back in play. In retrospect I probably could have hit a 9-iron because I cleared those trees pretty easily. But I want to make sure while I am playing so you want to give yourself the best chance to get your ball back out into play in one shot to help minimize those high scores on your scorecard.
