Oh.
00:03
All right guys, the key to pulling this shot off
00:05
is to hit the ball first.
00:07
I'm going to give you a couple
00:08
easy steps to make this happen.
00:09
The first thing you wanna do is
00:11
take one extra club, and you're gonna grip down.
00:14
Next what I'm going to do is
00:15
I'm gonna make sure that I have about
00:16
60% of my weight on my lead leg.
00:19
And the most important key is
00:20
to make sure that I leave it here
00:21
throughout the swing.
00:22
So what we're gonna do is we're gonna stay
00:24
on this left side throughout the swing.
00:26
Stay steady.
00:27
And make sure that I finish low.
00:29
Essentially you wanna feel like you're
00:31
hitting a low shot, hit the ball first.
00:33
And there you go.
00:34
(upbeat music)
00:49
And that's how you hit it clean and on to the green.
00:51
Even if you have to get a little
00:52
messy doin' it sometimes.
