How To: Hit your approach shot close in a golf game

Hit your approach shot close in a golf game

Golf champion Bob Broman gives tips on how to make a third shot on a par five with the green being slightly upward. The pin is on the back part of the green on an upward angle at about 90 yards. He explains hitting a lower shot using a pitching or sand wedge. He uses the pitching wedge with a stance further from the tee and hits lower in the air in order to get the ball to the upper part of the green, which in turn will allow the ball to roll closer to the pin or hole. He keeps his elbows bent for a comfortable smooth swing with the same grip all the way through, without stiffening or straightening out his arms. The amateur golfer will benefit from this instruction by following the stance, using the right club, and especially following through with nicely bent elbows and solid grip.
