Your drive has gone under a tree and with low branches blocking your path to the green you are wondering what to do about it.
Stop worrying.
The answer is to pull a three or four iron out of your bag, grip down, and set yourself up to play the ball back in your stance with your hands in front of the ball.
Now, taking no more than a three-quarter back swing, punch down on the ball, taking care to place most of your weight on the left side.
Before you take it out on the course, though, it would benefit you greatly to practice this shot until you can play it without having to think of all the technical aspects.
