Wedge it Close

There’s nothing better than watching a wedge shot rain down like a lawn dart. It’s about accuracy and distance control.

Steve Stricker and Zack Johnson are master wedge players who have a very similar and simple technique. They take it back and thru with very few moving parts. Their bodies stay centered over the ball and their wrists are really quiet.

Staying centered over the ball allows you to make solid contact time and time again. It’s consistency. The more you start swaying and moving over the ball is when things start to go awry.

Keeping your wrists quiet stops you from giving it that extra little hit on the ball or that flip to get it into the air. Neither of which you need.

Staying centered and keeping your wrists quite will give you a consistent swing. But what about distance control? How do you dial in you distances with a wedge?

Watch today’s prescription for a super simple tip on how to dial in your distances with your wedges.

Happy flag hunting!

    The biggest mistake amateurs make is flipping their wrists. Once I learned to keep my left wrist firm, and to trust my swing, hitting a wedge shot from any distance is fairly easy. For distance control on short chips, I control my backswing, and legs are open slightly left(right handed), and are quiet thru the swing.
