LONGER RANGE

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

For medium- and long-range wedge shots, swing the club and ro­tate your body to­wards the tar­get at a faster pace. You can see here (be­low and right) that the fol­low-through is longer for shots in the 40-to-60me­tre range. That’s a re­sult of added speed. Note how I ro­tate my en­tire body to­wards the tar­get – legs, too. I think of it like gears on a bi­cy­cle. Start with three gears (swing speeds), and see how far the ball goes with each. You’ll de­velop your own dis­tance sys­tem.
