To play a super lob shot—the kind that you might see Tiger or Phil pulling off with ease—you need some basic setup changes. With your most lofted club and a centered ball position, begin with a wider stance and an open clubface. Now, lower your body and the handle of the club, as if your posture was being compressed into the ground. Finally, pull the handle of the club slightly away from the target (above). Then, make a big swing with a revved-up pace, allowing the clubhead to pass the handle through impact.
