If you swing down hard enough the force of impact—coupled with the eventual squaring of the face—will pop the ball up and out. Don’t even think about finishing your swing—leave the club buried in the sand.
Don’t try to “make” 30-plus footers. Instead imagine that the hole is in the center of a circle that’s six feet in diameter and leave your lag inside that circle. This removes the pressure to make it so you’ll putt with more feel and less tension in your hands.
Every round no matter how low your handicap may be you and every other golfer out there will make some less than perfect swings miss some fairways and greens and hit some really bad shots. I remind you of this because one of the wonderful parts of the game we play is that sooner or later we all face recovery shots from the trouble our poor shots happen to find.
