Three-part alignment Having opened the face of your wedge, if you sit it down behind the ball you will notice that it points to the right of the target. If you think about a clockface, the target line is at 12 o’clock; the face of your wedge should be pointing at one. Now set your stance – your feet should be aiming at 11 o’clock. I see a lot of golfers almost pointing the club at three o’clock and their feet at nine o’clock but this makes the shot far too complicated to play well. With such a vast difference in your club and body alignment, it is almost impossible to hit the ball in the direction you want to. So set a slightly open body position and swing the club along the line of your body. This will help you find the ideal loft and direction you are looking for.
