    How to Control Backspin

    Controlling the backspin on your shots is extremely difficult. In fact, even PGA Tour and LPGA Tour professionals find it hard to control the backspin on their shots on a consistent basis. In 2012, for example, Kyle Stanley applied too much backspin on his wedge to the green on the 72nd hole of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, the ball sucked backward into a greenside pond, and he registered an 8 on the hole to lose a tournament that appeared to be in his hip pocket.
