Lots of instruction on achieving the same thing. Most have many things in common. I like Shorty's explanation best, but also Spyder's. When I find myself in that situation, I usually grab a #4 hybrid. play the ball back in my stance sometimes as far back as off right toe. Come down on the ball, use "hinge and hold" but keep it low , legs rather quiet. Keep follow through low like maybe 1 foot off the ground and "point" not so much of a release involved as there is hold in place. There is some rotation involved though. If I need to go a little higher, use a club with a little more loft. Ball will normally shoot out, maybe 3 to 4 ft in the air, hit the ground and have a pretty good roll on. Last time I tried this, I was in the trees and although I tried to keep it low, it went a little higher than I wanted, but as it turns out, good thing. Even though I did not go under the lowest branch, it found an opening a little higher and had an unobstructed flight right up to the fringe of the green. Threaded the needle. or to put it another way.....Just Got Lucky!
