Phil Mickelson is, in my opinion, the best player in the world around the green. I think Jordan Spieth is a half a step behind him. So watch the master as he shows you how to use trajectory to help get the ball close around the green, even when the lie is not that great! The high shot out of the rough requires a slightly different technique than the regular flop or lob shot. Check it out here! Thanks to Swing by Swing and GolfSwingVideoTips for sharing.
The ability to get up and down is the difference between good players salvaging pars and average players making sloppy bogeys.
Missed greens are a part of life on the golf course. But the ability to get up and down is the difference between good players salvaging pars and average players making sloppy bogeys or double bogeys. Straight forward shots from the fairway or short rough predictably result in a higher percentage of success, but where a player can really separate his or herself is from the gnarly lies just off the green.
Phil Mickelson, one of the greatest short game players in the history of the sport, shows you the subtle, yet imperative adjustments you need to make to use trajectory to stop the ball when spin is not an option.
