You hit a great approach shot that comes up just short, just long, or just wide of the green. No problem, you think, I'll get up and down from there and save my par.

That doesn't have to be the case.

In today's golf tip, PGA Professional Quinn Griffing demonstrates how to best get your ball out of a bad lie near the green.

Believe it or not, you have that shot in your bag. You just need to spend a little time working on it.

In today's golf tip video, PGA Professional Joe Plecker shows you how to hit both a low and a high shot off the ground with your irons.
