Golf Tip – Belly Wedge

September 7, 2015 Posted by Matt

belly wedgeLearn to play a belly wedge.  A great time to play a belly wedge is when your ball lies up against the collar of the rough near the green.  With this shot, you will use your sand wedge and line it up so your point of contact will be the middle, or belly, of the ball.  Make a stroke that misses the grass and strikes the ball as if you were putting.  The ball will roll nicely and you will not get caught up in the grass behind the ball.  Try practicing the belly shot with the ball on the green and develop a stroke that strikes the ball in the middle.  Then, place some balls against the collar and practice from there.
