Are your wedges working together?
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.
