Set up correctly to spin the ball on short shots.

To put a little spin on the ball around the green you must first understand that you have to strike the ball at the bottom of the downswing. To do this requires a good set-up. Start with a narrow stance and position the ball a little back of the center in the stance. Lean the shaft toward the target and when doing so feel your weight slightly on the forward foot. You don’t need a lot of wrist action so take a firm grip and clip the grass on your practice swing. It takes commitment and trust when you go to hit the ball so just remember what the practice swing felt like and repeat it. The commitment and trust aspect cannot be overstated. Now, go practice.
