Golf Book on Hitting it Longer

Sometimes, when you're fairly close to the green (generally within 2 or 3 feet) and your lie is bad enough (down in long grass or in a depression, or both), one alternative is to use a putter and actually pop down on the back/top of the ball. This causes the ball to bounce up and start rolling with exaggerated forward spin.

Although it is difficult to precisely control the distance the ball rolls with this shot, many times it's better than having the ball come out too soft. Experiment with it; it's a pretty nice little shot to have in your bag of tricks in desperate circumstances. (Note: this only works well if the ground under your ball is firm.)

Golf swing and short game techniques are covered in simple and user-friendly detail in my books, "The Your Golf series," shown in the graphic above (and a couple to the right).

And I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
