Video Golf Tip | The Bump and Run Shot

Here is a situation on the golf course where you have got a couple options. I am only about 60 yards from the hole and for most people that would be a pitching wedge or a sand wedge. They take a swing or maybe even a full swing and who knows where the ball might go. There is out of bounds just over the green. Well there is a safer play and an alternative play. It is called the bump and run. Rather than taking out the sand wedge, I am going to take out a 7-iron. I am going to make a little swing, kind of similar to a chip shot swing, just an expanded chip shot swing. Not going to have a lot of wrist in my stroke. I am going to swing the club back on through with a short motion. Try to fly the ball about halfway to the green and let it roll the rest of the way. I have adjusted the ball just a little bit back in my stance, firm with my wrists. There is an alternative play, a little safer play especially if you do not have a really good lie off the fairway.
