Wedge Game?

Golf Today Northwest - - From The Pub­lisher - DUN­CAN, PGA

the wrong time or wrong amount you’ll spill the wa­ter. The ‘feel’ is very soft and smooth – not wristy or fast. Club se­lec­tion: I have 4 wedges – a pitch­ing wedge (46 de­gree), gap wedge (51 de­gree), lob wedge (58 de­gree), and a flop wedge (64 de­gree). I know what each does at full grip and full power (though I don’t gen­er­ally hit the 58 or 64 at full power), I know what each does at full grip no power shoul­der-high, and I know what each does at short grip no power shoul­der-high. This gives 4 dis­tances at full grip/power, 4 at full grip no power shoul­der-high, and 4 at short grip no power shoul­der-high. That’s 12 ver­i­fi­able yardages in­side of 120 yards! Ac­tual re­sults: Stop try­ing to hit par­tial wedges a spe­cific dis­tance and start find­ing out what dis­tance they go when you strike them well. When you po­si­tion and swing par­tially, and take the power out, how far does each go? We want ac­tual, ver­i­fi­able re­sults. Ev­ery­one is dif­fer­ent, and will get dif­fer­ent re­sults. Many ranges don’t have short yardages mea­sured, and it can be dif­fi­cult to ver­ify. If on-course, try hit­ting 1 club 6 or 8 times on a given hole and see how far it goes, but be sure not to pick a tar­get. Hit the shot and if it doesn’t get to the green, move closer to the green un­til you can ver­ify how far the shot goes. Now armed with a base­line for your par­tial shots, you can choose the club, club length, swing length, and power option that will pro­duce the yardage you need. And now, you have a par­tial wedge game!
