Tip of the Day

Hard Ground/Divot Holes/Pine Needles

When hitting from difficult lies, try not to let yourself get 'psyched' out over the prospect of a poor shot. Instead, take a three-quarter backswing for maximum control and make the following swing adjustments.

On hardpan, play the ball farther back in your stance.

Play a normal 'hardpan' shot making sure to hit down into the ball.

Keep your hands ahead of the ball at the address position and be sure to hit down into the ball.

Hit down into the ball when the ball is centered in a divot. Firm up your grip and close your clubface a little to prevent the edge of the divot from opening the toe at impact. Firm up your grip and open the clubface slightly to prevent the divot from catching the heel and closing the face at impact.
