Video Golf Tip | High Trajectory Pitches

A lot of amateurs want to know how to stop the ball quickly on the green. Well the best way is to hit a higher, softer shot. Use your sand wedge, or even your 60-degree lofted wedge, to hit this shot, depending on how quickly you want to stop the ball. Then make some adjustments in your set up to hit a higher and softer shot. First of all, widen your stance and stand further away from the ball. This lowers your center of gravity which will help you get the ball in the air right away. Then you set the clubface down a little open and you lower your hands. The more you lower your hands the more you increase the effective loft of the club. If I stand closer to the ball I have less loft than if I stand further away and lower my hands. As far as the swing is concerned, keep your bend in your knees, let your hands and arms swing the golf club, but keep that clubface open as you go. You will get a higher, softer shot and one that will stop quickly on the green.
