A golfer once asked Sam Snead, “Mr. Snead, how do you get backspin on a 2 iron?” He replied, “How far do you hit a 2 iron?” “About 180 yards”, replied the golfer. Sam retorted back “You don’t need backspin you need topspin!” But if he had asked Weston Neesham of the Alamo City Golf Trail, he might have got a different answer, because in this video Weston shows you how to get crazy backspin that ball!
Watch this video with Alamo City Golf Trail instructor Weston Neesham on how to get more backspin. Wes gives us a few tips that will help you hold more greens and control your distance.
