around the green. Either from a bad lie, the fringe or the rough, this can be a very valuable shot.
The problem is most golfers try to do this shot with a horrible setup and technique. The video below shows how most golfers will setup like it is a full shot from the fairway and just flick their hands at it.
You need to get very close to the ball so your hands are a little cramped and push away from your body. That gets the heel off the ground and gives less surface area to snag on the ground. Then you just make a putting stroke.
The video shows both the common wrong way and the correct way to do it. You don’t have to do it exactly how I explain and show. get comfortable, but make sure the general fundamentals of the shot are in place.
