PGA Pro Marc Spencer shows Mama and Me collar options!The key is to strike the equator of the ball using the leading edge of the club. This is an advanced play that requires soft hands with zero tension and smooth tempo.
Set up is the same as a chip shot. The ball is ahead of center, and your weight favors the left side. The only difference is that, instead of hitting down, you need to stroke the ball like a putt.
Play a sand or pitching wedge on the equator of the ball. You want the club’s leading edge to strike the center of the ball.
A collar is where the fringe and green meet.
