  1. Same shoulder turn back and belt buckle forward without rolling the wrists on this flop shot?

  2. Paul,Opening the club face and swinging to the left is an invitation to shank the ball ,the hosel contacting the ball first ?Do you address the ball more with the toe than with the middle of the clubface to avoid the shank?
    What club to you use in this fine demonstration :the 56° sandwedge or the lob wedge 60° or 64°?

      Raymond,

      You are only going to shank it if you are too tilted or your roll onto your toes in the downswing. Why would you roll onto your toes in the downswing? Because you are trying to hit down on the ball or go down to get to the ball because you are too tilted. My students never shank it.

  3. I’m with Raymond here. I can play flop shots as you outline and similarly in bunkers opening the face and aligning my body to the right(left handed) but I do more than occasionally shank.
    Why ???

    Hi Paul,
    Does one use a 60 degree, sand or pitching wedge for this shot? I have a mental issue with the “bounce” on the sand wedge. Any way to get into my brain and “fix” this?

    Thanks,
    Len

      Len,

      You are only flopping it with a sand or lob wedge.

      Get the right bounce for the course you play at. Tighter fairways less bounce. Then just work on your technique. Do it in light rough first as I showed in this tip. Get confident then do the same technique from the fairway. You can hit this shot from hard pan.
