Control Trajectory And Distance With Your Wedges

It’s pretty common that people ask me how to hit a mid-range shot that doesn’t require a full swing. The key thing that I see people struggle with is that they try to take a full swing anyway.

You want to pivot and lever the club, then use the ground and deliver the club through impact with your wrists to increase clubhead speed. This technique, combined with a short and low follow-through gives you both distance and trajectory control.

"Prior to discussing my putting with Stan, I was struggling badly. What he told me in just a few minutes meant more to me than what anyone had ever told me in regards to my stroke. Stan has a great knowledge of the game and a wonderful way of getting his message across."
