The flop shot is one in which you need a certain set of circumstances in order to consider it, and when you play the shot, there are a few adjustments you need to make.

First, you need to open the face of the club to give it some more loft, and secondly, you want to get your hands behind the club coming through impact — something you typically wouldn’t do.

Finally, this shot allows for more room for error than most think; utilizing the bounce of the club, you can make contact with the ground before the ball and still get the desired result.
