It happens to us all. A tree jumps right out in front of our ball. Well, it sometimes seems that way. When there's just no way around it, you can go over that tree.

Check out this tip and learn how to make your sand wedge or lob wedge do the hard work. You will have to adjust your stance and change your ball position, but getting up and over isn't as difficult as it seems.

On cautionary note, however. There will be times when common sense should prevail and you should just get the ball in play by punching or chipping it into a nice, open fairway.

Enjoy the game again,
