The Punch Shot - Golf Academy at Hatchford Brook

December 11, 2018by scaggmoosh0

Possibly our favourite shot in golf. We love seeing our ball fly really low either into wind or under branches and bounce up to the green. Here’s the punch shot explained in simple terms.

All you have to do to play this shot is take loft off a normally fairly high lofted club, like a 8i, 7i or 6i. To do that, position the ball further back in your feet (in line with your right foot for right handers) and tilt the handle forward so the shaft of the club isn’t straight up. Hit it hard and make sure you keep the handle forwards when you strike the ball. If the handle falls backwards then the shot will go high like usual.

Let us know how you get on and we’re happy to answer any questions.
