PUT THE CLUB ON THE BACK OF THE BALL
When there’s no cushion of grass under the ball, I’ve seen a lot of amateurs freak out. Don’t. This shot is not that demanding if you remember one thing: Give the back of the ball a smack with the clubhead. That means your club should ride along the ground a little longer through the impact zone, taking a thin divot after the hit. A great drill Randy uses to teach this swing is to tee a ball
1/16th of an inch off the turf and have students try to shear the head off the tee with a 7-iron. If they do it, the ball takes off like a rocket. Decapitating an imaginary tee under the ball also is a great image to use on the course.
