Tight Lie; Short Shot

A pitch short or short chip shot from short grass or a tight lie can be a challenge even for the very best players. Make a few practice swings and brush the ground in a way you would do it if the ball was there. Nowwithout a lot of thinking step up and hit the shot with the same motion you practiced. You want the club to skim the ground and not dig in on these shots. To be sure this happens, don't get the hands too far in front of the club head.
