Four new putters and wedges to try.
We all know that sharpening your short game is the smartest way to improve. Heck, you can even practice in your office. But even though the wedge and putter are the easiest clubs to swing, fittings are a rarity. Consider this: “More than 90 percent of golfers don’t have the right wedge los,” says Nick Sherburne, founder and master fitter at Club Champion, one of our 100 Best Clubfitters. He suggests knowing the lo of your pitching wedge and building the rest of your wedge set with 4- or 5-degree gaps between each wedge. It’s not much better with putters. Todd Sones, one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Illinois, believes at least 60 percent of players who come to his shortgame school are using an ill-fitting putter: “Very rarely do we see a player come in set up correctly, and oen players are adapting to the putter instead of the other way around.” He says the right length is critical. “Length affects setup, setup affects stroke, and weight matches with the right length for better feel and control.” If you want a lower handicap, get better with your wedges and putter – like some of the latest here:
