HOW TO HIT WEDGES TIGHT FROM ANY DISTANCE
STICK IT FROM ANY DISTANCE
on the course than I did last year. My priority now is to win a major, and I plan on being in the mix on the big Sundays in 2016. One reason I’m con dent is that we have a plan. Butch Harmon and I went through the 2015 stats, and one thing really jumped out: My wedge game was weak. In almost every category the PGA Tour keeps, I was up there – driving the ball long and gaining strokes tee to green and making putts. But from 100 to 125 yards, I nished last year 145th on tour. On average from that range, I hit the ball 21 feet from the cup. That’s just not good enough. Five or six feet closer, and all of a sudden you’d see a lot more putts go in. Sure, I’d have days where I was throwing it in there tight, but overall, distance control with the wedges cost me. So, what I give you here is my revamped wedge game. I did a lot of work over the winter getting sharp with three basic shots: the full wedge, a op-pitch shot and the chip. Master these, and you can cover just about any situation. Slick wedge play makes your on-days great and your o -days still pretty good.
