Wedge & Bunker
For the average golfer wedges are the most used clubs exclusive of the putter. Wedges represent a minimum of 18 % of all shots. If you do not hit a lot of greens in regulation the percentage is even higher. Approximately 12% of all shots come from 40 yards and closer and another 6% of shots from 40 to 100 yards or the yardage of your "full" wedge. You will be introduced to the "hour glass effect" and why it is necessary to establish various lengths of backswing that correlate to specific yardages with specific clubs. We will work throughout the clinic to establish a wedge game plan for you. It's fun and it is exciting.
In addition to the wedge play you will be introduced to the simplest way to hit a greenside bunker shot. This simple method guarantees quick success and removes any apprehension about bunker play. Guaranteed!
