That’s all there is to it! I find it helpful to swap fearful thoughts (It would be awful to chunk this) for finesse ones (Just “kiss” the grass). Embrace the moment and be smooth. Oh and your lower body should work just as hard as your upper (weekend players tend to “deaden” their legs around the green).
so that you can hinge your wrists fully as I’ve done in the far-left photo. But don’t just hinge your wrists. Allow your body to turn away from the target as you do in a full swing. Stop your backswing when the club reaches a position parallel to the ground.
Opt for a gap wedge instead of your sand or lob wedge. The longer shaft length on the gapper automatically provides more speed. Trust me—you need significant power on this shot.
