Video Golf Tip | One Plane Half Wedges

Lindy, let's share with the folks here some of the wedge shots that we play. It’s very important for a good player to be very good with the wedge because that is a scoring club for you and there are a lot of par-fours where she may have a half wedge into the green. Let’s go ahead and hit a couple of shots out there. She likes to get maybe three different yardages with her 58-degree wedge. Did you hit that ball? Are you all right, Bob? I was a minute ago. What a shot, were you aiming for my ear? You got it, really nice. This is why we need practice with our half wedges. Bob has probably been watching Lindy play and practice now for five years and he has watched her progress with her wedges and full swing. We always talk how it is very much like baseball, same release, same throwing motion, a lot of hand action, a lot of arm throw, a lot of body pivot through. These are the kind of shots that you should be practicing at home.

Impact Bag Drills The moment of truth in the golf swing is when the club impacts the ball and using an impact bag will help you get the correct feeling of impact
Buried Lies in Greenside Bunkers With a buried lie you must use your sand wedge as a digger to get below the bottom of the ball so square the clubface to dig into the sand and create a more downward swing arc
Vision Focus: Set Up A common fault in the set up is having your head down and chin too close to your chest, this drill will fix that and allow you to turn effectively and use your legs correctly in the swing
