Video Golf Tip | Hitting Over Water

Hi, I am Glen Farnsworth from the Jim McLean Golf School. One of the most unique things about the Blue Monster at Doral, and what makes it so difficult, are the par threes and the fact that the wind is always blowing. What I would like to show you here is that when you are hitting over water there are two things that are crucial. Number one: getting the correct yardage and choosing the correct club; and number two: 100 percent commitment to a full finish. Remember, the right club, the right yardage and commit to a full finish. I hope this tip helps you to enjoy the Blue Monster and courses like it a little more.

Setup for High Pitch Shots Watch Video>>

Causes of Heel Shots Heel shots are caused because you either move the center of your plane out towards the ball during your swing or you start too close to the ball at address
Vision Focus: Set Up A common fault in the set up is having your head down and chin too close to your chest, this drill will fix that and allow you to turn effectively and use your legs correctly in the swing
50 Yard Bunker Shots Turn your 8-iron into a sand wedge by opening the face and playing the ball like a normal greenside shot
