Magic Golf Trick – HOWTO Catch A Golf Ball After You Hit It

Here’s a HOWTO on catching your golf ball AFTER you hit it.

1. Open the clubface so it’s pointing behind you about -10 degrees.

2. Really feel like you are sitting down.

3. Get wristy and loose with your hands.

4. Make a nice swing and catch the ball.

The key here is to hit the ‘bounce’ of the sand wedge. (Oh yes, you can use Lob wedge or Sand wedge for this shot) while making a smooth swing.

If you can do this, send me a video so I can post it on my site.

Junger Woods Swing Tips - The Low-Bullet Slice Shot

This is probably my favorite arsenal in my bag. You’ve probably seen Tiger on the practice tee showing off this shot too.

It’s a low-bullet slice shot. It’s great for hitting around the trees. The ball will take off very fast at about 90mph and then curve quickly at the end to the right.

Here’s how to hit it:

1. Get a 2 or 3 iron.

2. Open your stance about 30 degrees to the left. (The amount you open depends on how much curve you want on the ball. This must be acquired by practice and feel.)

3. Open your clubface about 30 degrees to the right. (same as above)

4. Put the ball in the center or back of your stance. (This depends on how low you want the ball to start. But don’t put the ball too far back, otherwise you will end up hitting down on the ball and put too much backspin which will make it go up.)

5. Rhythm is everything. Swing nice and easy about 3/4 or 1/2 swing. (A knock-down shot basically…)

P.S. You don’t have to hit down on the ball. Actually you want to sweep the ball like a Driver or a 3 Wood. The reason is again that you don’t want to hit down on the ball. That will cause extra backspin which will make your ball flight rise and beats the whole purpose of trying to hit a “low-bullet” slice shot.

You can practice this shot by trying to hit at driving range poles, yard markers, etc…etc…

Wow, check out Steve Elkington’s stack and tilt swing. It seems like this is what some of the pros have been doing after all along… This helps you to actually transfer your weight before starting your downswing, something Ben Hogan used to do…

Check out Aaron Baddeley’s new Stack and Tilt swing. (I know, I’ve haven’t been watching TV nor read GolfDigest lately…)

we call it the Stack & Tilt Swing. Keeping your weight on your front foot is the simplest way to control where the club hits the ground, which is the first fundamental of hitting the ball. Golfers who shift to the right on the backswing have to make precisely the same shift back to the left by impact. That complicated maneuver is the biggest source of frustration in the game today.
