Check out the top shots of the week from the 2021 Valspar Championship, featuring Justin Thomas, Max Homa and Sam Burns who claimed his first PGA TOUR victory at Innisbrook Resort (Copperhead).
Sam Burns showed some exceptional wedge play on the way to his first PGA Tour victory this week at the Valspar Championship. His domination was due in large part to his precision and ability to hit scoring shots on the Copperhead course. If you are looking for some crisp contact like Sam with your scoring clubs there’s a lesson to be learned from his pre-shot routine and takeaway.
Poor short iron shots can result from a steep angle of attack on the ball. Think of impact being the bottom of the capital letter “V” rather than a “U.” The round bottom of a U is a much healthier way to approach the ball. As any PGA Coach will tell you, steep downswings can lead to poor contact and in some cases injury. By healthier, we actually mean better for the long-term sustainability of your game!
