Tip of the week!Many golfers ask me how do I get 'back spin' on the ball?Generally I tell them not to bother trying, because 90% of shots come up short anyway, so why would you want it spinning back. Getting the ball to back spin requires three main things:1)You need to strike the ball firmly and well. 2) You need to be using a ball with a fairly soft cover 3) Try to make sure you strike slightly down on the ball. This will get the ball skidding up the club face and will impart maximum spin on the ball.Happy GolfingMike WilsonProfessionalRoyal N Devon Golf Club(01237) 477598
