This setup trick will get you sticking it close
How to stick it close more often from 50 metres out.
The 40- or 50-metre wedge is one of the most feared shots in golf for the average player. But it doesn’t have to be. One easy adjustment will help you hit it solid every time. Take your address with the ball a little forward of centre in your stance and your weight evenly distributed between your feet. Now, before you start the club back, slide your hips towards the target. Why? A short wedge shot doesn’t require a full swing, so you don’t have time to make a big weight shift to your front side like you do on a longer shot. This hip slide helps compensate for that by moving your weight predominantly onto the front foot before you swing. It’ll help you hit the ball first, then take a divot. That ball-then-divot progression is your goal, especially on wedge shots.
Just before you start your swing, move more weight to your front foot.
