What I have here is a 50-yard shot, so many people in the game struggle with this shot. I take my normal 60-degree wedge. The key to this shot is accelerating through impact. Now I see so many instructors teach a method kind of like a clock method where you want to go back and through the same difference, that’s crazy. You want to accelerate into the ball and if you take the club way back here, you have too much energy.
The ball is going to go sailing past the hole we want to go shorter back and accelerate into the finish. That gives me aggressive contact. We’Ve got to go into the ball aggressively to hit these 50-yard shots solid and close to the hole if we are decelerating or slowing down, because we’ve taken the club back too far, you have no chance to be consistent or successful.
