you still use your hands
Your hands still do a lot of work, they are what provides the artistry and help you alter the trajectory. Learn how setup dictates what the hands will do at impact.

Tour players make bunker shots look simple, find out what the tour players utilise in their techniques to guarantee contact, spin and trajectory.
How you practice and apply the techniques you use is vital to your success, the practice will be broken into sections. You will work at the technical aspects of your short game and then apply some pressure via tests.
All practice begins with block practice where you are working on pure technique and working through a variety of shots. You will spend more time on the shots you are struggling on and you will begin the evaluation with how you are controlling your strike, then your speed and lastly your trajectory. Then you can use feedback loops to ascertain your skill development in a chosen area.
Applying SMART practice sessions in golf that include feedback loops allow you to own the changes in your game.
Tests form a vital part of your practice they are where you will be able to pressure test the technique. It’s where you will build your skills and learn how to create the diversity you will require on the course and in competition.
