Todd Sones: Bump & Run vs. Bump & Spin

A couple of the shots Todd Sones and his staff teach at his Scoring Zone School outside Chicago are the Bump & Run and the Bump & Spin. It all depends on how you want the ball to react once it hits the green, but if you watched the Open Championship at St Andrews, you saw a lot of players hitting these shots off tight lies. They greatly reduce the chances of hitting that dreaded skull across the green.

Todd Sones is one of Golf Digest’s 50 Best Teachers in America and has been a Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor every year since 1995. He currently serves on the Golf Academy of America’s National Advisory Board. Watch Todd show you the keys to executing these shots with confidence, and if you like what you see, be sure to check out Todd online at
