How to Play a Low Shot Under a Tree

How to Play a Low Shot Under a Tree

I am going to give you tip on how to make the most out of your game. The best way is to lower your bad scores. Every golfer who plays the game gets into trouble once in a while; well sometimes more than once in a while. If you are in a situation like this where you are stuck in the trees, there is a couple of things to consider.

How to Save a Bad Shot

First thing is, make sure you get your next shot back into the fairway. If you are going to try to play a shot underneath the tree, you got a couple of adjustments to make. One, put the ball back in your stance, put your hands a little forward and choke down on the club. This will give you a little bit shorter swing and actually keep the golf ball down lower.

Club Choice for Hitting Under a Tree

But your club selection is probably most important thing. If you feel certain you can hit a 5-iron underneath that tree, take out a 4-iron just to make sure. Out and back into the fairway in one shot and you are going to have a lot better golf score at the end of the day.
