Connect With Your Game - Lob Shot
The lob shot is one of the main golf shots and specific techniques which most professionals execute perfectly and make look ridiculously simple. While the majority of amateurs struggle over this dreaded shot which can lead to catastrophic scores during their monthly medals and local competitions, many amateur golfers simply struggle with this shot due to a poor set-up or lack of any simple technique.
The shot automatically requires huge commitment and confidence, something that most golfers lack when they are at set-up and stood over a difficult shot like this.
While many golfers use too much hands and wrist rotation in the shot and become happy when that comes off, Carter believes the key to consistency with this shot is due to weight distribution on the left side of the body, whilst simultaneously increasing the loft on the club, launching the ball in the air with lots of spin and a very soft touch.
