VIDEO - THE FLOP SHOT
The Flop Shot really comes into play when you need to loft the ball a short distance over something yet have very little green to work with the other side. Holding the club slightly further down the grip, the aim is to maximise clubface loft at the moment the club contacts the ball. The wrists should ‘cock’ in the backswing and the swing is long and leisurely with your hands slightly ahead of the ball. It is primarily played with the Lob Wedge but the Sand Wedge and Pitching Wedge can also be used.
