A “hit it from the back” is a shot where you hit the ball at an angle to make it go further. It’s not as easy as it sounds, because you have to swing at just the right time and with just enough power.
If you’re trying to hit a high drive or an approach shot with enough height, then this isn’t the way to go. You want something that will roll through or come off the grass with more pace and maybe even spin on its way down.
If you can hit it from the back and make it go through, then that’s great — but if you can’t, then don’t worry about it too much. The important thing is that you feel comfortable hitting shots from unusual angles and distances.
