Dave Pelz on Playing a Punch Shot

Over at the Golf Magazine site they've published a post by Dave Pelz on how to make your punch shot the most dependable trouble shot in your bag.

Dave Pelz shows three positions during punch shot

Dave describes the mechanics very simply:
" the ball two inches back of center in your stance and make a half- or three-quarter swing. The overall feeling should be "together and compact," with solid lower-body control."
There's more in the article, of course. Dave goes into considerable detail about how to choose the direction of your punch, which he says is at least as important as the mechanics. The photo above comes from this section of the article, and I should note that the two ball positions are for clarity. The ball in front of his club is his normal ball position while the ball behind the club is his punch position.

Look, it's rare that you get to read such a brief article that contains so much useful information. By all means, drop by the Golf Magazine site and check it out. You'll be glad you did!
