HYBRID

Using a putting grip and smooth, arcing stroke, bounce the ball up the slope and let it roll on. Keep your head steady and accelerate for a solid hit.

8-IRON

Choose a landing spot, and make a downward strike, trying to carry the ball about halfway there. Finish low to encourage a descending blow.

LOB WEDGE

Play the ball forward, and let your wrists hinge back and through. Keep your spine angle constant for solid contact. Land the ball where the hill flattens.Ranked No. 4 on Golf Digest's list of America's 50 Greatest Teachers, McLean is based at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami. Click here for more tips from McLean.
