Though many players may not fully commit on a flop shot, this is necessary to get the full effect of the swing. According to Luke Guthrie, to hit this shot properly, "I open the clubface, extend my left shoulder going back, and thenbam!slam the club into the ground. I know this sounds scary, but the bounce of the wedge will do its job to prevent the club from digging. The key is to not slam the club and stop. You need to keep the clubhead moving forward full-throttle, with the face pointing at the sky."
