Low Lob Layup


You get too much roll on the green while you trying to make a low lob on the green.


Do not set up with your hands too far in front of the ball because this could cause the ball to roll off of the green. Make a safety shot by selecting target that is halfway between the fringe and the flag.


Hit at least a half bucket of balls at the driving range while using a three quarter swing. Keep track of the distances and use the average distance as a point of reference of your low lob on the course. Set up with the ball off of your trailing foot. Your hands should not go higher than your naval during the backswing and forward swing. Think of your hands, clubshaft, and clubhead moving more in unison as you approach the ball. Although you are not swinging at 100 percent, you still need to complete a full turn towards the target.
