Are your wedges work­ing to­gether?

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Wedge prac­tice is one of the fastest ways to bring down your hand­i­cap. In the photo above, Deb­bie’s help­ing me test dif­fer­ent wedges by try­ing to land balls on a towel and see­ing how they run out to the hole. You can play this game to im­prove your short-game skills – or to build the per­fect gap be­tween the wedges in your set. You want three wedges that pro­duce dif­fer­ent shot tra­jec­to­ries and dis­tances.

This phi­los­o­phy is more ob­vi­ous for full-swing shots but also ap­plies to these lit­tle chips and pitches. If two wedges do al­most the same thing, you’re go­ing to be short some­where else in your bag. The pur­pose of get­ting fit is to op­ti­mise your equip­ment for your swing and physique but also to max­imise the num­ber of shots and sit­u­a­tions you can han­dle.
