Paige Spiranac on Recovery Shots (Video)

With all the difficult recovery shots the women are using at The Olympic Club, I thought this video would be appropriate. I've used a lot of the shots Paige demonstrates here and can attest that they don't require a lot of technique, just a knowledge of how to do them.

I do want to give you a few details to pay particular attention to in the video.

  • Some of these recovery shots are just arm swings. Your first thought will be to try and make a normal shot, but too much leg action will ruin these shots. These recovery shots aren't power shots, they're positioning shots.
  • All you need to make some of these shots work is to change your setup a little. The lefthanded recovery shot will take a little getting used to, but that's just a matter of practicing the shot a few times on the range.
  • And don't forget that a lot of this is simply about making good strategic decisions. Sometimes the best thing you can do is just chip the ball back out into the fairway, as Paige says. Good strategy should always win out.

Just remember that recovery shots aren't about being aggressive. They're about getting your ball back in play while hurting your score as little as possible in the process. That's what you should learn from Paige in this video.
