Playing From Tight Lies

By: Golfshake Editor | Thu 22 Jul 2021 | Comments ()

Tight lies on links courses can often be a difficult shot to pull off every time but this type of shot should be fairly straight forward. 

Golfshake Equipment expert and PGA Pro Ryan Rastall talks through how to set-up to help playing from tight lies and moving away from simply trying to get loft on the ball and flicking through the ball which often ends up with a poor shot.  

Golfers should focus on trying to maintain the loft rather than forcing with flicked wrists.  Through a simple set-up change Ryan suggests getting the handle of the club leaning further forward to help maintain consistent loft and a purer strike on the ball.

This video was filmed as a series of links tip on location at the fabulous Dundonald Links in Ayrshire, Scotland.  Find out more:
