Over a bunker to a severely sloping downhill green…yikes!
With the right focus and set up, this shot is not so intimidating. And we don’t need one of those super fancy flop shots either. Instead, we will use the loft of your club and make a simple pitch stroke.
To pull this shot off, I am focusing on my landing area (not the flag) with super soft hands arms and shoulders. Tension kills shots of this nature. With your SW or lob in hand, set up with an open stance and clubface. I’’ll land this ball just on the green and let the slope take the ball to the hole.
The high and soft effect is a result of the clubhead sliding under the ball, allowing the ball to climb the face to achieve that high flight, similar in effect to a sand shot.
