Simplify your short game

 
Practice, check, repeat on the course
 
Knowing exactly how far you hit each wedge with a short, medium and full swing is vital if you want to become an accurate wedge player. You can also start to practice different shots. 
 
9-3 swing 11-1 swing Full swing
 
 
Bump and runs.
Flop shot.
Low shot into back pin position. Low controlled shot into the wind. High approach shot into
front pin position.
 
Armed with your wedge chart and your favorite distance with your favorite wedge, you’ll know where to lay-up if you can’t get to the green with your approach. That’s better game management. Every golfer, whatever their handicap, should have a wedge chart.

 
Fill your wedge chart

To gauge a distance for each of your swings for each wedge can be difficult without assistance. So why not book a session with us. Let’s complete your wedge chart and at the same time, we can look over your three swings. Maybe there are other improvements.

Better ball striking

 
Struggling? Is it the release?
 
Last week we told you that one of the primary reasons that some golfers make poor contact is their weight movement on the downswing.
 
 
 
Instead of the weight moving from the back foot to front foot through the downswing, some golfers attempt to lift the ball at contact by making an ascending blow on the ball. This almost always involves the weight traveling the wrong direction – front foot to back foot - in the downswing.

The other cause of inconsistent and poor ball striking we see is the early release of the club; sometimes known as "casting".

 
In this image, the clubhead is being released very early, and the angle between the lead arm and the shaft has been lost too soon in the swing. Clubhead speed will be lost at impact, and so will ball striking consistency. Good ball striking requires that the clubhead is released to the ball later rather than earlier in the downswing. Look how the angle between lead arm and shaft has been retained.
 

 
Most amateur golfers finish short of their target,
even after they’ve given it everything. If you’re a mid to lower handicap, you need accuracy, and that’s as much about distance. So think about taking one club more than you need and shortening the backswing and follow-through slightly.

 
What would improve your ball striking?

Is there a single fault that is impacting on the consistency and quality of your ball striking? How easily can it be fixed? It’s worth finding out because solid, consistent contact with your irons is one of the best feelings in golf. It’s time for better.
