Sophie Walker: How I hit it low
Sophie Walker is a professional golfer who plays on the Ladies European Tour.
We took the Shack on tour to Forest Pines to get some tips from Sophie. Here she shows us how to hit the ball low.
One of the main things to remember when hitting this shot is that many people have the misconception that you should have the ball way back in your stance.
Sophie explains that this is how you get too steep on the ball resulting in your shots squirting off to the right.
In order to make the low/punch shot work make sure you follow the below key points…
A bit about myself…
I turned professional in October 2006 and gained my Ladies European Tour card in the November. It was a very proud moment for me as before it was mostly about the team, now it was all about me.
So here I am living out my dream of playing sport for a living. Most people say they dreamt of playing golf from a young age. I just dreamt of being a professional athlete.
Tour life has its ups and down but I can honestly say that the places I have been and the people I have met have been amazing. Every week we are at a different venue, but it’s the same people so we are like a circus/family.
I am now taking part in my 10th season on tour. I’m settled and happy with the way things are going – it’s up to me to let my golf do the talking and see how far I can go…
