How To Hit a Wood or Hybrid off a Long Par 3 and Get It to Stop on the Green

By May 25, 2016Blog, Golf

Long par 3’s can often cause a lot of indecision before we hit the tee shot – particularly if we’ve got a bit of water or an obstacle to hit over to get to the green!

As part of Golf University’s weekly “Tip from the Pro” I videoed Grant Field the Queensland PGA Teacher of the Year and coach of upcoming PGA Tour Superstar Cameron Smith at Riverside Oaks Golf Resort, in Sydney, Australia, where he teaches us:

  • The right clubs to use from a long par 3
  • How to get the ball to come in higher and softer

  • How to avoid having the ball come up short or run through
