Sometimes golf is not nice and you end up
00:09
in a spot like this.
00:10
So what are you gonna do?
00:11
We're gonna hit it from the other side.

I'm gonna give you three simple
00:21
steps to make this look easy.
00:23
The first thing that you're gonna want to do
00:24
is grab your pitching wedge. Now a lot of people
00:26
want to pick a three or four iron because they
00:29
the face is flatter but I'm telling you,
00:31
the pitching wedge has the most face area and
00:33
your chances are much higher with this golf club.
00:36
Number two, you wanna reverse your grip,
00:38
flip the club-head over and put this ball
00:40
in the back of the stance.
00:43
And lastly, we're not trying to kill this ball
00:44
we just want to get back into play.
00:47
So nice smooth, steady swing.

01:04
And if not, first make sure no one is watching
01:08
and foot wedge it back into play.
