3 Options From 40 Yards

Mr. Short Game give us three options to choose from when faced with the 40 yard pitch.

Maybe laid up on a par 5. Maybe we’re trying to save par. Whatever the reason, we have options from around the 40 yard range. Depending on what we’re facing in front of us and the hole, we may want to throw the ball in the air. We may want to land it short and run it up to the pin. We may even want to bump it up to the green.

Here are three options and how to play each when you’re faced with different scenarios on the golf course.

    Great tips. Enjoy your approach to the game. Ok, I am a 13 handicap. This shot FOREVER f*cks up my scorecard. I will take out the lob wedge, set up, take some nice practice swings, establish some tempo. I make the shot, and get the bacon strip divot and have the ball go maybe 15 yards. WTF? Also have this happen with other wedges on full swings. I have 100 yards, pull out the sand wedge. Again, ball in the middle of the stance, take some practice swings, execute and same result. I never seem to ‘flush’ the wedges above 50 degrees. Suggestions?
