    The "dead hand" shot

    I was at the range, practicing chip shots with my 52 wedge, and a guy that was hitting balls next me noticed that I was putting my shots fairly tight. He remarks, "that's a nice looking dead hand shot."

    Just curious as to what that actually means.

    Thanks!

    A "dead handed shot" is what it sounds like. Very little wrist and hand action on the shot resulting in a shot with less spin on it. This is a great way to develop control and distance control on less than full shots, and the biggest benifit is the release (reaction on the ball) is fairly predictable so once you know the carry and roll distance you are really in business.

    cool. My step-dad taught me this shot. This is the shot where I had asked about getting the ball to hit, bounce and then bite.
