ONE BACK­SWING

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life -

Dis­tance con­trol on less-than-full wedges be­gins with mak­ing the same back­swing no mat­ter how far you have to go. A con­sis­tent end point lets you fo­cus on down­swing speed to reg­u­late dis­tance. Start in a nar­row stance with most of the pres­sure on your lead foot, the ball just back of cen­tre. Hinge the club up – that adds loft to the shot – and keep turn­ing un­til your left arm is par­al­lel to the ground (be­low). That’s as far as it should go. Now you’re ready for any down­swing.
