Pelz Quick Tip:

Better Sand Play is Easier than you Think

Many golfers will tell you the shot they dread most is the greenside sand shot. This has always surprised me a little because this is the one shot in golf where you don’t actually have to hit the ball. That fact alone should alleviate some anxiety, but a lot of golfers don’t understand how the club and sand should interact on these “blast” shots.

Pelz Quick Tips

The Chipputt

Chipping with your putter is called “Chipputting.” Just as in chipping, a slight body turn can add a little power to your swing, making it easier to get the ball to the hole. Position the ball slightly forward in your stance, stand upright, and chip with your putter. Expect to use the same size swing as if you were chipping with a 5-iron.

Better Sand Play Is Easier Than You Think

This has always surprised me a little because this is the one shot in golf where you don’t actually have to hit the ball. That fact alone should alleviate some anxiety, but a lot of golfers don’t understand how the club and sand should interact on these “blast” shots.

Proper Swing Motion

One problem we see consistently at our schools is that golfers focus on hitting the ball instead of focusing on executing a proper swing. By focusing on hitting the ball, many golfers develop a long backswing with a short follow-through. This results in deceleration through the ball, which causes inconsistency.

Don’t Go to Fat City

After hitting a fat shot, most golfers say they got too anxious and “looked up” to see where the ball was going. Not only do they say that, they believe it. But when I measure their swings and ball positions, I usually find that the ball is too far forward and that they are making swing compensations with their hands in an attempt to hit the ball cleanly from that incorrect spot.

Commit to your Wedge Play Ritual

Many of our students have a tendency to get technical on the golf course. They get bogged down in swing mechanics and forget the importance of developing proper rhythm. Technique is important, but it’s equally important to have a consistent rhythm in everything you do on the course.
