Control Your Trajectory With The Knockdown Shot

Ryan Rustand

SwingU Instructor

Whether you are playing in windy conditions or just need to keep the ball low, the knockdown shot is a great tool that can be used on the golf course.

This lower-trajectory shot calls for a shorter, more compact swing that can actually be much easier to control than a full swing shot. Without sacrificing much distance, you will be able to keep the ball flight low and straight with some simple changes to your setup and technique. 

Below, SwingU instructor Ryan Rustand goes over the basic fundamentals of the knockdown shot, and when you may way to use it on the golf course.
