Video Golf Tip | Short Shots Over Water
By Tim Cusick

You can see that I have just a short shot to the pin, it is basically 100 yards that I am from the pin. This is a relatively easy shot when you are playing the game of golf. The only problem right here is that I have some water that I have to carry over. Someone can have this shot on the golf course where there is no water and all there is is grass and there is no big deal, they can play this shot all day long. Now you put a body of water in front of the ball and all of a sudden everyone starts to panic. What you need to do is you can't make that water disappear. There is no way, you can sit there and talk yourself until you are blue in the face but that water is not going away. What you have to do is you have to be committed to your shot. You have to understand what it takes for you to hit a good shot. You have to stand up here and make a good practice swing and be very committed to the swing thoughts that you have to hit a good shot. Then step up there, picture a good, make your best swing that you can make, and that shot turned out great. I had a great visual image of what I had to do. I put it to use in the swing and I got a great result. So remember, when you are hitting over a body of water, you can't make the water go away, but you have to be committed to your shot. If you do that you are going to hit better shots more often.

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
