Here I’ve got a long iron approach from a tight lie,
which is a shot that gives a lot of players a hard time.
If you picture a player like Adam Scott,
who’s known for having this beautiful golf swing,
hitting these high launching long irons,
he can do that because he does two things really well.
One, he manages the low point of his swing.
So, he hits ball first and the low point
occurs just past the ball.
The second thing that he does really well
is he manages the angle attack.
The club comes in nice and shallow.
It’s not steep and digging into the turf,
and you can see how he has these nice, shallow divots
as the ball gets up into the air.
I want you to picture two imaginary
golf balls in front of your own.
As you hit, your going to feel like you sweep
all three golf balls up at once.
If you can do that, your going to get ball first contact
because your going to have to have your low point forward.
The second thing that you have to do is have
this nice, shallow flat spot down at the bottom
so you can catch all three balls.
So hopefully it looks a little bit like this.
