You often hear that great short-game players have great hands. How they use their hands really affects how the club is going into the golf ball, and if you can understand how those hands and the club match, you can become a great short-game player, too. When you assess your lie, get a natural feel for what you see the shot doing by swinging your hand without a club in it. From there, if you’re picturing a low runner, deloft the club with the palm down; if you’re seeing a high shot, open the blade up and use the bounce.
