This week’s tip from PGA Pro Sam Shaw is regarding putting with loft

If you are looking for a simple approach to your short game, try ‘putting with loft’.

If your relationship with the lob wedge is on the rocks, consider trying a 7, 8 or 9 iron when you are in near proximity of the green.

Use the same to address fundamentals you would when using a putter.

Grip down on the iron and allow your arms to hang down in an effort to create a pendulum motion.

Place the golf ball in the middle of your stance and use a putting stroke (no wrist and keep your body tight).
