Hit It Like Phil

I found this short video over at Teacher Brian Manzella shows how to hit that little 3-wood approach shot to the 17th at Muirfield.

I like the way he keeps this so simple. You can probably get the effect Brian talks about by setting your weight a bit more on your lead foot with your normal ball position to get the steeper plane, aim slightly more to the right (or left if you're a lefty) and make sure you square the club to your intended target by using your trailing hand a bit more. (That is, straighten your trailing elbow a bit more as you strike the ball.) Pretty cool, huh?

If for some reason you can't play the embedded video here, you can go to this link at to watch it.
