Golf Tip – Stand Closer

July 24, 2016 Posted by Matt

stand closerTo hit your wedge shots more accurately, stand closer to the ball than normal.  When you are hitting a shot with a pitching wedge or sand wedge, your swing should be more upright.  You want to approach the ball from a steeper angle than you would with your longer clubs.  To hit a good wedge shot, hinge your hands as you swing the club back.  Then come down on the back of the ball. If you keep you swing compact, you will hit solid shots and be more accurate. Head to the driving range and stand closer to the ball when practicing your wedge shots until you feel comfortable over the golf ball.
