2 Tips for Hitting a Lob Shot Every Time

By Paul Marchand

Here is a shot that really helps your full swing. I suggest you practice it often, not only for your full swing, but so you will have a little courage when it is time to hit it. I have a lob shot over a bunker into a little bit of green with water behind the pin, probably one of the most ultimate lob shots.

Tips for Hitting the Perfect Lob Shot

I do have the good fortune of having some grass underneath the ball and the is one of the real paramount things to have when you are trying to hit the ball up into the air. I am not advocating here that you need to use a 60-degree wedge, in this case I am using a sand wedge and I am going to open the face a little.

Lob Shot: Swing Shape

The shape of the swing, I want the club moving along the ground through the grass up and out of the ground with a nice soft follow-through. If I can picture the shot, it is sort of like tossing a ball underhanded, I want it to land very softly. So the practice swings are slow, the acceleration is very fluid. It is a swing that is fairly delicate.

Instead of being short and anxious about it, I want to be long and flowing. It is a shot if I can pull off I am going to feel real good about and save some strokes, but it is also a shot that is going to help my full swing, I suggest you practice it.
