LEAD WITH THE SHAFT

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - Play Your Best -

Whether it’s a hole from a divot or some other type of de­pres­sion where your feet are slightly above the ball, I’m hop­ing your in­stincts kick in, and you re­al­ize you can’t “lift” it out of this lie. You’ve got to hit down on the ball. In fact, Randy teaches some stu­dents how to use longer clubs by hav­ing them hit balls out of these lies. A good thought for this shot is to have the shaft lean­ing to­ward the tar­get as you strike the ball. Cody Gribble, 26, won in his sec­ond start as a PGA Tour mem­ber (San­der­son Farms Cham­pi­onship), but nudg­ing an al­li­ga­tor back into the wa­ter at the Arnold Palmer In­vi­ta­tional in March was his vi­ral mo­ment on so­cial me­dia.

“When the ball’s sit­ting down, you’ve got to go down and get it.”
