How to stick it tight inside 100 metres.
HOW TO STIFF IT INSIDE 100 METRES
IF YOU TRY TO REGULATE the distance you hit your wedge shots by changing the length of the swing, you’re not as accurate as you could be. Golf instruction is partly to blame.You might have been told to handle different distances by pretending your arms are like the hands on an imaginary clock face, and that you can dial in a specific shot by swinging back or through to a number on the clock. A backswing to 9 o’clock might result in a 30-metre shot, for example, but a backswing to 10 o’clock will send it 40 metres. That’s a logical idea, but it’s flawed.Why? Two swings can be the same length, but if the clubhead speed at impact isn’t the same, the ball will go different distances. Conversely, swings of different lengths but the same speed will produce roughly the same distance. It’s not magic. It’s physics. With that in mind, I’m going to teach you how to hit wedges pin high from various distances by changing your swing speed – that’s how Jordan Spieth and I do it when we work together.To keep it simple, these shots will fly about the same height.You can experiment later with trajectory. For now, practise these stock shots, and you’re on your way to becoming a wicked wedge player. – with ron kaspriske
