The Punch shot
This is my favourite shot in golf. It can be played from a long iron down to the sand wedge. Being able to hit the ball low into the wind is an extremely valuable asset. Even in calm conditions you may face a shot where the hole position may be on the top tier and in the back of the green. This is the perfect opportunity to play a punch shot where you could land the ball on the bottom tier and run it onto the top.
This is the biggest difference between professional golfers and amateurs.
