How to Hit the Ball and Catch It (and Hit it Again)!

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

You probably remember that shot I hit for fun the other day, well you probably want to know the nitty gritty on how to hit that shot.

There’s actually a bunch of ways to hit that shot and I have learned many ways to hit that shot over the years. This video shows you how to hit that shot in the easiest way I can describe for single-digit handicappers.

You will need to hit this shot on a mat for now until I figure out how to hit in on real grass. You can hit it on real grass too, I’ve done it but it’s like 100 times harder.

Well, I’ve got some more video tutorials coming and this simple shot of hitting the ball and catching it will teach you a lot more about golf than just doing the trick. Golf is somethin’ else, sometimes the stupidest trick shot can teach you a lot about golf.

I’ve been hitting type of shot for over 20 years, it used to be actually a regular flop shot and one day I thought perhaps maybe I can even hit it higher and higher. The result? The golf ball started popping so close in front of me that I could literally catch it.

Have you seen that new movie “Karate Kid”?

It’s like that, golf is in everything we do. The stupidest, simplest trick shots can be the basis for your whole golf swing.

And yes, this stupid golf trick taught me more about golf than I can imagine over the previous couple weeks.

Think about it, if you can hit the ball and catch it, what else can you do with that shot?
