    Nicely done…I love that shot! That’s very good advise for many including those who don’t hit a long ball and over swing a club to a relatively short distance.

    Sound advise!

    Keep up the good work!

    Hold on… His face on shot, went head high and 10 yards right of the stick. The overhead shot obviously came in at a much steeper angle of descent, landed within 10 feet of the hole and sucked back 3 feet. With a 7 iron? I think we just saw magic.

    Definitely a shot that requires some practice to pull off. I would argue it’s a valuable shot to have as an option when the wind is screaming downwind as well. But what’s curious is while (at this moment) 18 people like this article, 11 consider it a shank. Not sure why.

    It’s an effective tool to have in the bag, Tom. Along with a punch shot to the flag, when the wind’s severely against.

    A good grip with relaxed hands makes these shots easier.

    Very effective but very technical as well….not an easy shot if your not used to flying a 7 iron 50yds with 20 roll out….definitely a shot that needs to be practiced and for a golfer who has lot of feel in their swing
