We're here to talk about nerve wrackers,
00:23
the shots that make you queasy on a golf course.

There are three technical keys to keep in mind.
00:44
The first, is the ball position.
00:46
Instead of having the ball in the middle of your stance,
00:48
like normal, you want to move it slightly back of center.

I'm gonna try to launch this thing as high as I can.
00:59
You've almost gotta play it like a bunker shot.
01:01
Set your weight forward, weaken your grip,
01:03
and get the club face pretty open.
01:05
