Weekly golf tips from the CU team
Is your game a flop? Check out this tip from senior Pat Grady to turn that flop in your favor.
A flop is a great shot to play when a soft landing is required. If you’re behind a bunker with little green to work with, a flop shot is your best option.
The trick to the flop shot is in a few places. For one, make sure that the turf you’re playing on is well suited for a flop shot. Any areas that have a hard surface or little room for the club head to slip under the ball should be avoided.
Next, with your clubface facing the target, open your feet to your target, creating a line that aims left of the target (if you’re right-handed), which will effectively increase the loft on your club.
Take the club up steeply and bring it down on the ball following the path of your feet. Finish the shot with the clubface pointing toward the sky to ensure that you keep the loft on the club.
