This is what I am really going to work on this winter – dialling in my wedge distances, no more trying to guess or using ‘feel’ on the course.
I am using the clock-face approach; imagine I am swinging on a clock-face and my left arm is the hour hand. 9pm would equate to my left arm being parallel in my backswing. As I rarely go past left arm parallel even on a full swing, I am only going to work on three positions; 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
A wedge swing should be symmetrical too, as in if I go to 9pm back, I will go to 3pm on the through-swing.
I will re-visit this page regularly to update my distances in the table below:
|LW||20 yards||50 yards||65 yards|
|SW||30 yards||50 yards||75 yards|
