Punch shot Golf Term

    Punch shot – A shot when a player uses a very low degree of loft to keep the ball’s flight trajectory low. This is useful for example out of the woods to avoid elevated branches. This shot is also used in high-winds to avoid the magnitude of the wind’s influence of ball flight. (Ex. The only shot Rick was able to play was a 4 iron punch shot from the tree line because there were several branches extending into his trajectory line.)
