Video: How to Hit a Stinger

Teaching Professional Brian Hwang demonstrates the stinger with a strong wind in his face on Royal Troon.

This low, hard shot helps you control your ball off the tee on windy days and has been crucial to Tiger Woods’s success at The Open Championship over the years. To hit this shot, use your longest iron, play the ball in the middle of your stance, get your hands in front of the ball to deloft the club, and concentrate on holding the follow through in a low position.
