“The most highly requested shot, the flop shot! This is my favorite shot to hit in golf and is actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it!” Spiranac captioned the post.
Describing it as a “high spinning shot they use around the green,” the 27-year-old explained how the flop shot can be used “anywhere” by following a few steps, which she demonstrates throughout the two-and-a-half-minute clip.
Spiranac also cites confidence as the key to a successful flop shot.
