Hard Shots in Golf and How to Handle (part 2)

The hit after a shank

The shank occurs when the golf ball contacts the neck of the club which is the joint between the head and the body during impact. When the club comes in contact with the ball in that position, the ball will fly in a curve and bounce in the opposite direction to the contact point. If you encounter a shank, you will lose a lot of distance and the direction will be completely deviated from the target you want to achieve. The ball may fall into a sand trap or into the water. Therefore, shanking the ball is always the shot that makes the golfer feel the worst when playing. They make them tense, lose confidence and feel relaxed or relaxed for the next shot.

The pitch from the thick grass to the green slopes down

Your shadow is lying on a thick grass that looks like a crow’s nest. The flag club is only 5 yards away from where you stand and in the downward slope. Your only and best option is to use a high pitch wedge, open the clubface and swing strongly. But this is not easy because the stick must slide across the grass into the bottom of the ball so perfectly and perfectly to get the ball out of the thick grass surface and gently land. If the club goes much deeper than the bottom of the ball, the ball will still just lie around the “crow’s nest”!

The shot hit the water trap

For many golfers, when faced with a shot in front of a water trap, it feels like they are seeing death with fear of losing the ball due to falling into the water. To reduce pressure and stress, try not to be influenced by the context. Take a safe aim for the ball and look once more at the goal ahead. It should be noted that you should avoid looking at the water trap because every time you look at it, fear will surround you. Instead, focus as mentally as possible to make a shot as good as you can.
