Mainstream golf wants you to hit high for your short game. I completely disagree with this recommendation, teaching if you will. The PPGS is all about decreasing the amount of error and possibility of error in our swing. Hitting high for your short game shots just increases your margin of error.

Shape your shots for low trajectory.
