Step 2: Short backswing

When playing the bump and run shot you don't want to take anything more than a quarter backswing as this gives you more control and less margin for error at impact.

David also has his body weight leaning forward towards the target through-out the swing to keep his shoulders steady for extra stability (pictured left).

The length of this shot can vary so make sure you practice with almost every wedge and iron you have in your bag to get used to the ball flights and roll lengths when on the green.
