Thats a great video - I made it full screen and the ball flight is amazing.  Whenever I try that shot it's a nasty NASTY draw.

Thanks for sharing!!

"This is a video I took on sunday at Bay hill on the 3rd hole. The wind was blowing right to left towards the water, tiger was talking with his caddie on the tee box and said "right at the crane and hold it up" meaning hit it at the crane thats on the edge of the water line and hold it up against the wind by playing a left to right fade. I had the best angle possible at this shot, and if you watch closely the ball rises right up the crane. This was the most incredible shot I have ever seen, and the TV angle was off to the side, so no one got to see how amazing it really was. so enjoy."

Nice vid! I was at Disney today and followed Gary Woodland for a while and on Hole 1 he hit a stinger 2 iron 310-320yds w/ the wind helping. The guy destroys the golf ball, it was great to watch!

Nice, stinger vids never get old!

This is my fav, hidden within highlights from the 2009 PGA. Personally I thought Tiger played his best with Haney, to me that technique meshed perfectly with his style of play.

EDIT: Seems like the embedding is not working, start at 1:34

Link to a golf.com article about the "stinger" shot
http://www.golf.com/...-tigers-stinger

if you want to go that site

here is the copy from the article (from 2006)


You can wear Tiger's clothes, play Tiger's driver, and pump your fist when you make a crucial putt. But can you play like Tiger? Yes, you can, or at least you can learn to hit his low, penetrating tee shot, called the "stinger."

Contrary to popular belief, Tiger did not invent the stinger. My dad, Claude Harmon Sr., taught the mechanics of this shot to many of his students, including my three brothers and me. I'm sure he never envisioned that someday a player would be using it to hit the ball 280 yards with a 2-iron, and I don't think you can expect to get Tiger-like distance from this shot, either. But the good news is, with the right technique, just about anybody can hit it.

Why, you ask, would you even want to try? First of all, it comes in handy when windy conditions demand a low, controlled shot that hits the fairway and runs. Second, it can be hit with virtually any club off the tee -- if you don't carry a 2- or 3-iron, a fairway wood will achieve similar results. The concept behind the shot can also be used for punch approach shots to receptive greens, using any club down to a pitching wedge.


At address, play the ball an inch or two farther back in your stance than normal, which will set your hands slightly forward. Choke down about an inch on the grip for added control. These adjustments should cause your arms and the shaft to form a "y". Make a smooth, full backswing, and try to retain this "y" as much as possible throughout the swing. The stinger's low trajectory and extra roll result from the bowed wrist position at impact. This means the left wrist is firm and curved toward the target. To feel this, my father had students hit a punch-slice with a long iron, asking them to "hit and stop." The only way to stop so quickly after impact is to keep the wrists firm.

At impact, my arms resemble the "y" position from address. This prevents the wrists from flipping over or "releasing" after impact. Once you achieve the bowed impact, the finish flows naturally, as the trunk and arms rotate the club around to the left. Instead of causing a slice, this allows for a low, running draw. The faster the body unwinds, the farther you can hit the ball.

The finish should feel very different from a normal swing where the hands turn over. To "sting" it, the wrists stay firm, and the left elbow folds down toward the ground.


Drill: Chip the 5-iron

Start small and work your way up. Begin by hitting a 5-iron punch shot about 30 yards, and then gradually add distance by extending your follow-through. Once you have it, the stinger can be one of the most reliable shots in your bag.

i'm not seeing the article match the video?

i can hit low shots taking a partial swing to keep the spin down, but i'd love to be able to hit low shots with a full swing.  the article mentions the wrist being curved towards the target (i read that as "bowed" as opposed to "cupped"), but the still photos at impact show basically just a flat wrist angle?

I have no idea why Tiger Woods doesn't exclusively hit stingers.  I mean on everything.  For whatever reason, he seems to never miss that shot.  If I were him, I'd hit stingers from 150 in the middle of the fairway.

Is the Stinger like a FULL swing knockdown ?
Is it possible that Tiger is not intentionally hitting a Stinger ?  ... they just come out that way some times ?

i tried the technique in the article yesterday and not sure i like it.  of course...I can't really expect to "master" the shot in one range session, and I did get a few of them to work, but more often than not trying to maintain that wrist angle resulted in an over the top weak fade/slice.

but i've got all winter to work on it. :)

It seems to me like to you would have to swing incredibly hard in order for this shot to work.  And it is incredibly hard to swing that hard while maintaining that wrist angle so that you can get the ball to rise after the first 50 yards or so.

I see the drill is to practice by basically chipping a 5 iron.  But I think all that will do is help you hit the cut.

To me, the stinger is basically a punch with low lofted club, high swing speed and abreviated follow through.

I'm trying this with 4 or 5 iron, and its getting lower but I wouldn't call it a STINGer yet.  Its definitely a shot I would like to be able to use more.

Is this shot possible with driver?  When I've tried it just spins and climbs.  I would have thought it would work ok with driver having lowest loft??  Am I misunderstanding the shot?

To hit a "stinger" you need to dramatically lower the dynamic loft through impact. In the simplest terms if you get the dynamic loft down to say 4* at impact with a driver you would probably be able to carry the ball about 150 yrds if you don't have unbelievable club head spead. It's just not a shot many people can hit nor would you really want to try. Your 3 wood has sufficient loft to allow you to hit a stinger and carry it a good distance.

Now when you try to hit the stinger with the driver and you get the low one that balloons on you, most likely you're hitting it low on the face. This causes a lower launch with more spin. Usually happens when people tee it really low trying to keep it down

Go to 1:58 in Zerix's top video. stop it at impact. Thats how you hit a stinger. Shallowing the AoA helps as well
