Better Distance Control On Wedge Shots
One of the things I am often asked is: “How do I get better distance control on wedge shots?”
At Boyne Mountain Resort we have installed Northern Michigan’s first Wedge Range. This area is specifically designed for hitting wedge shots. There are 8 targets place in the ground spread out every 10 yards in a baseball diamond fashion from 30 up to 100 yards. It’s a quiet unique place to work on your short game.
Distance control is so important in every faze of golf especially inside of 100 yards. I often see handicaps drop significantly as I work with players on their short games. In the video above Mike gives you three tips to help you control your distance:
→Length of the Backswing
→Speed of Your Arms
Of course these elements must be blended together to produce a shot with the right trajectory, distance, and spin to land on the green and stop quickly. Really it all comes down to practice. There’s no doubt, having the Wedge Range has made my players practice more, because it’s fun.
