CCG Tip #42 Above and Below...
OK, so this tip has to do with "how do you play the shot if the ball is above or below your feet?"
First, this will just cover some of the basics of these shots, you're still responsible for taking it out and practicing to see what works for you.
Above your feet, you're going to set more weight towards your toes with this shot. Don't over-swing, take more club. You're probably going to see this shot turn over to the left. Depends on the loft of your clubs, the more loft, the less it will turn. So aim more to the right to adjust for this.
You're going to swing more like a "baseball swing" more around you (use more leg and hip) and less "up and down" You're goal here is to just advance the ball as best you can and leave yourself a good lie for the next shot.
Below your feet, weight more towards your heels and don't flex your knees to get to the ball, instead bend more at the hips. With this shot you'll probably see the ball go more towards the right side, so again aim more left to adjust for this. This shot will also be a more "arms and shoulder" (use less leg and hip) swing if you want to maintain your balance. Also take more club than you need and swing easy. The goal again is to advance the ball to a lie that is better.
So there are some basics to those shots. Remember don't try and hit that "hero" shot, just get it back in play and try and practice these shots to see what works best for you.
Hopefully these tips will make the round a little less messy and you'll enjoy yourself more
