Short-Game Impact

As we move from the green out to the fairway, the characteristics of impact change dramatically. The attack angle goes from upward to downward; the ball rotation goes from forward spin to backspin; the shots go from the ground to the air. What remains the same is, the dynamics you create at impact determine where the ball goes. On shots inside 100 yards—the subject of this video—that means trajectory, distance and roll. Here, Michael Breed takes you through the details.
