Good Advice On How To Avoid Fluffing Your Lob Shots

Making a lob shot is something golfers commonly have trouble with. This shot has a level of difficulty, but when you pull it off the right way it can be a great shot on the course. There are a few elements to pay attention to when considering the shot including a few aspects of your set up and how you approach the shot before your swing. When understanding the process of what needs to be in place (or what should happen) keep practicing the shot to get better results. Here are simple points to consider when avoiding fluffing lob shots.

  • Ensure proper grip. If you don’t have good grip it leads to bouncing of the club. This is sometimes a result if the grip is too tight. If your grip isn’t tight enough this could create lack of control of the ball and the swing technique. Practice the grip and swing motion you should have for this shot. There are variations to consider, but more practice will help in understanding how to place your hands and how to control the ball with your swing.
  • Create longer swing motion but maintain slower tempo to ensure solid contact. A longer swing motion also helps create a better follow through after contact has been made. The tempo or speed of the swing also plays a role since it helps in maintaining control. It may help to practice swing motion a few times before approaching the ball.
  • Practice. It is likely there are aspects of the play that should be practiced when possible. Review elements of your setup and how you approach the play. What elements can be improved upon? What result do you want to work toward? It may help to practice the shot with a buddy or an instructor. They can help critique your moves and give insight on what can be adjusted. Look for golf drills that can help improve results for lob shots.
  • Ensure club head is in place before swing. Consider inside heel as a way to guide the shot through. The clubhead should be in line with the path the ball will take after impact. Consider swing path and how the club will follow through on this line. You can also make sure you are using the best iron for the shot and review aspects of body position during setup.
