Played a round with buddy yesterday who's pro. Besides insane consistency, one thing I noticed he could do is hit this iron shot that had an extremely penetrating flight: it would take off low but then it would seemingly rise and gain altitude; besides being super cool to look at, it served him well on several shot where he wanted to work the ball to a back left/right pin but was initially blocked out on either side (whereas I had to play a much larger draw or fade to work around the obstruction).
Anyone have any idea how this is done? I can play low shots at will, but they don't look anything like this. Is this a knockdown or stinger, or whatever it's being called now?
