Hitting out of a sod-faced bunker is the same as hitting the flop shot.

A lot can be said for having a proficient short game in golf. For those skilled golfers who don’t hit it far off the tee, they usually score by hitting accurate shots with every club in their bag. That is why it is important, not only for the very good player but also for the higher handicapped golfer to have a good short game.

The Flop Shot

This short pitch shot is played with a very high-lofted wedge in order to create maximum height on the ball’s trajectory. The intention is to throw the golf ball high in the air and have it land softly on the green, stopping quickly and with very little roll.
