This One Shot Will Lower Your Golf Scores!
This One Shot Will Lower Your Golf Scores!


in today’s video I’m gonna go over the
one shot that will dramatically and consistently lower your scores no matter
what level you’re at let’s go okay Matt here thanks for stopping by hope your
scores are getting better and better with each video I put out there for you
and if you haven’t subscribed already I would really appreciate it if you do
that now thanks so much now a lot of people have been asking me about this
video I did I’ll put it right up here about how to hit this low spinning check
shot and so this video is gonna go over this shot is similar to that but it’s a
little variation of that that’s definitely gonna help you dramatically
lower those scores okay so check it out so a lot of people have been really
struggling with the concept of how to open the face and hit the ball lower
like can you actually do that so here’s what I’ve got I’ve have my my Voki sm7
54 degree wedge today I’m using the M grind and it has 8 degrees of Bounce so
kind of in that middle range of bounce not a ton but not nothing so 8 degrees
is kind of in the middle and to show this I’m gonna use the same balls
everything is the same watch the first shot I’m just gonna keep the face square
okay and I’m gonna hit like a pitch shot we call pitch about a 30 yarder kind of
here and just keep an eye on how high it goes okay same setup right here right so right around here now that’s
with the face square not open at all now I’m gonna open that face and the ball is
actually gonna go a lot lower and you’ll see it right here so open it up about
gosh I mean I’m probably opening it up 10 degrees I’m no mathematician but you
know it’s here to – they’re here to there
open that up and with this swing this one’s coming really around my body here
and it’s that same 30-yard shot okay so that one went here the first one was up
here when you open the face of the club now you’re deflecting all the energy of
the club moving you’re deflecting it off so when the face is square all the
energy is just going right through the ball thus propelling the ball farther
because all the energy that you’re created is going straight through the
ball to transfer of energy equation so then when you open the face and you
swing around your body well a lot of that energy is being transferred up the
face of the club so instead of the energy pushing the ball forward that
energy is creating more backspin and then the bounce actually helped keep
that ball lower that’s why it goes lower with a lot more spin and that’s the
premise that’s a concept and really the science behind how to keep it lower with
more spin by opening the face of the club okay so it’s very important we
understand the science of this shot because if you don’t really appreciate
or believe and the fact that you can open the face and actually hit it lower
then you’re never going to be able to pull off this shot that I’m gonna show
you right now so I just use my my wedge my 54-degree to just explain the concept
real close to the net so you can you can get it so the shot that’s going to lower
your scores is identical to that except we’re going to
use a different club you can use a 9-iron an 8-iron a 7-iron I’ve done it
with a 6-iron and but the 8 is really the sweet spot this is so you can hit
that you know depending on how far you hit it you can use that pitch swing and
hit it about 70 80 90 100 yards and hit a nice low shot into that green balance
a couple times and check up and it’s super easy no longer do you have to take
a full swing to hit those shots you could just take this little pitch shot
and it’s so much easier to control where that ball goes if you could just take a
short little pitch swing watch so I’m gonna take my 8-iron I’m gonna open the
face it’s gonna add some bounce it’s gonna help keep it lower so I can get a
little more backspin on it and just pitch it about 80 90 arms same exact
setup as before open that face swinging around my body I don’t have to go up I
just go around keep everything tight in turn and it’s that little little shot
right there that’s about an 80 90 shut yard shot
right there open that face about you know ten degrees or so just everything really centered open
that face and just here not a whole lot going on you’ll find that when you when you open
that face and you just turn that little that little swing that it’s so much
easier so much more consistent like every time it just starts right
online it’s like you’re you’re just throwing darts at that at that flagstick that’s the shot I really hope that you
get something out of this because this truly is like a key element for
dramatically lowering your scores is having this type of shot in your bag so
that you know if you’re punching out if you’re saving yourself if you’re getting
out of trouble and you need something like this
especially on those tight lines in the fairway this is gold it will really do
some great things for you so give it a try let me know if that works for ya
okay and any questions you have you know regarding this type of you know shot let
me know I want to know how it’s working for you okay thanks for watching I

    thanks MSG keen to try this

  2. Rodney Greenwell says:

    At first I really liked your videos but unfortunately your like the boy that cried wolf …
    Every video has the title or punk line
    The best
    The number one or something similar instead of putting buzz words in your title just simply say what your video is about and tone it done no one is that hyper all the time …
    Good luck moving forward unfortunately I'm unable subscribing now ….

  3. Phil Swift says:

    You should call your channel "Mr. Bomb the Driver" that's all most want to do. lol

  4. warpspeedfd says:

    Beginner here. Definitely learned something today. I always wonder why the pros slant their golf club. Now I know why.

  5. rienkepienk says:

    Hi Mr Short Game, if you open the club face and keep a square stance then how come the ball doesn”t go right?

  6. Tom Page says:

    Awesome I am learning a lot from you!!!

  7. Jake Rutherford says:

    Yeah the title is a little click bait, that doesn't mean it's wrong. Adding this shot to your practice routine will ad a comfort level with your swing in general and thus allow you to shoot lower scores. I can personally attest to this.

    Great video in my opinion. I really like your enthusiasm for the game! If you get a chance can you talk about your shoulder to hip alignment? I am not sure how far off I was but today I noticed a slight opening of my shoulder line to target/hip line stopped a pull/block issue I was seeing. I'd love to get your take on the subject.

  8. MrShortGame Golf says:

    The ball will fly straight because of your swing path. If you are too much inside out it will go to the right and outside in will cause the ball to go left. You can also set up more open but then the ball will tend to get up in the air more.

  9. Kurt Justin says:

    Have you touched on the grinding yourself taken away from

  10. Kurt Justin says:

    What stuff to understand about the swinging ..all going on ..if you're actually playing on ground ..you would be getting into the surface a little bit, where you can't do that on this artificial turf . in the right or what… so I'm sure that's.. that has to be taken into account when you're practicing somewhere of those shots, 2 grind them on down to where your dialed in perfectly from whatever comes trying to keep it in the Fairway. KJ

  11. Kurt Justin says:

    How about how much airspace do you have with where the ball is touching to where the board is solid

  12. Kurt Justin says:

    Shot my first bird with a 6-iron chipping up on the Green.. Willow Creek Golf Course private but you can Be Our Guest and there are times online. Okay and we're still over back to the show.. Lol

  13. Kurt Justin says:

    Slow is so good give me slower

  14. Kurt Justin says:

    Liked subscribed haven't been able to get out but surely will soon

  15. Bryan Sprenger says:

    I'm confused. I think you said opening the face lowers the trajectory, but how come everybody tells me to open the face, to hit a flop shot for example.

  16. Olivier Bert says:

    Do you change your alignment when opening the clubface ?

  17. Dave Bucks says:

    i am a new subscriber from London and today i shot my lowest score for a number of years using some of your tips as i have watched loads and picked the best ones for me. I just want to say thank you because your tips have given me hope i can get back to where i once was a few years ago before i got lost in too many thoughts that didnt help. The keep your head down myth you broke was the key. Thank you again and i wanted to ask what your thoughts are on The Hanger training aid ?

  18. Erik Thureson says:

    good stuff Matt! Your blinding me with science! 😉

  19. Jerry Moore says:

    I open the club face and open my stance to flop or hit a very high shot. Something doesn't compute!!!

  20. Chad Crosby says:

    Off to the mat i go to try this out.

  21. invisaman75 says:

    Can we see you hit this shot on the course? Thanks!

  22. Stephen Flood says:

    Show us on the practice ground, can't see if it works hitting it into the net,cheers 😉

  23. Austin C. says:

    Your vids would be more convincing if you actually hit off the turf, not a matt. And by the looks of your yard, you have plenty of turf to work with.

  24. keith raine says:

    Great tip gonna try this tomorrow if I can master this it will definitely lower my scores, cheers

  25. wjhall307 says:

    When would you use this shot? Does this shot create backspin?

  26. _ DEVSTER _ says:

    I love this shot! When I had more time to practice I'd start with an 8iron chipping around the green and back away 10yds at a time until I backed out to a full shot.

  27. Prince Chieftain's Journey says:

    Bravo to this concept

  28. mike murray says:

    For the more beginner type players take note of how close his feet are together. That's how to execute a pitch shot. Maybe he should have pointed this out. Great vid btw

  29. Brendan Coughlan says:

    I must make a youtube video too with me hitting balls into a net and then call it 'how to get a hole in one everytime'

  30. MARTIN says:

    this means nothing untill you show the shots on real grass on a golf course..shots of mats are meaningless

  31. Joel Monje says:

    Misleading video my score went up:(

  32. Cameron Smith says:

    Peep dog

  33. 9tube1 says:

    Loved seeing your dogs. So glad I watched this vid as I now have a good mental picture of swinging around the body with the face open to create spin. That should smother the ball quickly. Thanks

  34. thatwilldonicely says:

    isn't this what Lee Trevino did?

  35. frank frank says:

    A Weekly golfer can get on any par 5 with three or four 7 iron shots. How many does it usually take you?

  36. Aodhan Kelly says:

    What type of ball flight does the first swing cause?

  37. Bodie2012 says:

    Alright I watched this video and didn’t believe it would work but wanted to put it to the test. So I went to my local par 3 tonight after watching and gave it a try. Tbh I thought for sure with opening the face like he said I would be pushing everything right, boy was I wrong.

    This totally worked for me I’m usually 4 over on this particular par 3. Tonight I was even and actually believe I should have been 3under greens hadn’t been cut or rolled in a couple days which cost me some birdie puts. I hit all but 1 green. I will be using this going forward in my game.

    I on average hit my 8 175 so with a this swing I was hitting it close to 110-120. Didn’t try anything below my 8. Loved this tip. Saw some serious back spin on 3rd green I hit.

  38. justlovethisgame says:

    Can you show us how you make this ball check on a real green using an 8 iron from 80 yds! The net is very deceiving!

  39. Van Ferrell says:

    Would like a down the line shot of this shot , it looks like your feet are aimed to the left of your target line you have opened yourself.

  40. MIGEL- NOREEN Valadez says:

    It would be great if you tried this on a hole and had the camera on the green. I would really like to see if this shot checks up. I like seeing pro's doing that shot where it bounces once, twice and checks.

  41. Vrmsali says:

    Will definitely try it on range first before i reach course

  42. General Mayhem says:

    One word: decaf

  43. Bob A Booey says:

    Does your local driving range know you stole tha range basket?

  44. Glasterz says:

    but actually one shot raises your score… by one…

  45. Coop Izzy says:

    can I get a like for the dogs

  46. Marc Mclane says:

    the dog in the background could give better advice.

  47. Tea George says:

    I was skeptical at first but when I went out and tried it last week, it works like he described here..a low pitch shot that comes off straight as an arrow with lots of spins. I tend to pull it straight left though perhaps because of the alignment/aiming. I still need to work that out along with the distance control for various irons. However I definitely can use this in my short game weapon bag instead of the full high pitch shot which I found harder to hit consistently and to judge the distance especially on windy days. Thanks MrShortGame for this tip. You've got a new subscriber!

  48. BillRyan42 says:

    This explains why I see the Pros hitting pitches with the club face slightly open. I've never seen this explained before. Thanks. !! Love the dogs. !!!

  49. starglasses76 says:

    This is one of the best golf tips I’ve seen. Twice today, I was 100 yards out and used this swing with a 6 iron and got it close. I was using this from other yardages, too, but don’t quite have my distances dialed in yet. It’s so strange seeing the lower ball flight on these shots and how they check up on the green.

  50. reginaldino enchillada says:

    I like your dogs.

  51. Doug Jewell says:

    You are literally playing on a dog track. lol I like your tips but you need to show us on a real course.

  52. Jack Wilson says:

    Love it-, going to give it a try.

  53. jaisrikanth1 says:

    Top video, following from Melbourne…!

  54. jtboise1 says:

    so, like in the bunker, if i open the face of my 8 iron for this shot, do I have to change my stance to point more left? Or, just set up square?

  55. Crackerjack says:

    That’s great but i gotta find out why my divot is 21” behind my ball? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  56. JJspawn says:

    Hi great vid. I was wondering when you perform this shot, which I really need in my game is your feet alignment open. The weight is it 50/50 or more weight on the front foot. Thanks for your help.

  57. Louie goseahawks says:

    does it matter what ball to use ??? i used noodles because they are cheap… can i check it with them balls ??? thanks !!!

  58. Gregory Thew says:

    Good tip. Use this type of shoot fairly often. Play where there are a lot of trees and need to get under/ around trouble. The chip shoot with a 7, 5 or a 3 iron. Practice straight, cutting and hooking. Nice saver to have in your bag. Will try this for more shots.

  59. Coburn Karma says:

    I tried this at the range today, kept shanking at first but with more rounded swing fixed after a super jumbo basket of balls. Thanks again.

  60. brown55061 says:

    I did this 1/2 8i swing yesterday but pulled it (no practice). If you have the 7 or 8 half shot like this it WILL come in handy for anytime you get stuck under trees inside 100 yards. I recommend learning how much swing it takes to hit your 5 thru 8 to 100 yds. You'll need this shot some day!

  61. Kip Heegaard says:

    Great video. Hey Matt can you do a video that is exclusively devoted to uneven lies out of the fairway and the rough? Ball below and above feet and downhill, uphill and side hill lies? Most of us high handicappers struggle with what to do there as we are often hitting from uneven lies

  62. James Learmonth says:

    Mathew, why do I suddenly shank after hitting maybe 20 good pitch shots. It’s so frustrating and scary?

  63. Peter Crocitto says:

    Looks like one of keys of hitting this shot is making sure you stay centered and rotate your body otherwise shake city

  64. Dale Kennedy says:

    Legend shot

  65. Michael Seo says:

    Can't wait to try this. I've been doing this (open club face with low around body swing) with my 53* to 40yd to 70yd shots. I no longer fear this distance. Now time to apply this technique from 70yd to 120 yds.
