Lob Shot? Tight Lie? MCS Short Game

tight-lie-lobThis is footage from a day last week at the range, where I was working on David D.’s swing with him, and I asked him how his short game was.

We discussed technique, and I even shot some footage that will be included in the upcoming “MCS Short Game” video, on which I’m working right now for release this week.

There is a reference to Tiger Woods’ alleged short game woes, and how one can avoid getting the “yips” simply by applying MCS Golf Swing theory to the short game – as I said to David D., the MCS full swing is a longer version of the same action you’d use for the short game strokes, from putting to pitching.

How about hitting a lob shot from a tight lie?  Watch the MCS way to do it, and these balls take off nearly vertically on the two balls struck in the video:

MCS Short Game – Tight Lie Lob Shot

For a little fun, do you any of you remember Phil Mickelson hitting a lob wedge over short-game guru Dave Pelz?

Short Game Trick Shot!

Well, I’m not going to make anyone stand in front of me while I do the same thing, but if you put a six-foot guy (183 cm) in front of me, at less than two paces, with a 60 degree LW (I believe Phil uses a 65 degree in that clip), I’d be able to hit a lob shot from a tight lie over his head…


I’ll be working on the “MCS Short Game” video until it’s complete, but I’m going to have it available this week for sure – I have a new computer and, while I’m still all thumbs working with a new version of the Movie Maker editing software, it’s getting better by the hour as I get acquainted with it.

Won’t be long now!

    I have been needing to get my short game in order. This is a sorely needed addition to your video collection, DJ!

      I did have an MCS Short Shots video that I put out in 2013, Jonas – this one, I feel, will be even better and certainly of higher production quality than my first effort. We’ll see soon! 🙂

      Oh, I think you’ll be able to do that no problem after watching the video and putting in little practice, DB! 🙂
