The ‘stinger’ golf shot is nothing new in golf. If you have played for any length of times, I am confident you have tried to hit this specialty shot. Personally, I think Tiger Woods is the player who popularized it more than any other player and would rate him the best ever at making this shot.

The ‘stinger’ is an important golf shot. It allows us to play the ball out of difficult conditions and adds some versatility to our shot selections.

Adding different shots to your game is very important. Personally, the ‘stinger’ is one that you should add first. It will be a stroke saver and help you improve your course management skills.
