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.
Don’t “stroke” it. Hit a “chip-putt.” From longer range a chipping-type motion gives the shot enough gas. It’s easy: Let your arms swing down from your taller stance. (Save your “stroke” for shorter putts.)
Every round no matter how low your handicap may be you and every other golfer out there will make some less than perfect swings miss some fairways and greens and hit some really bad shots. I remind you of this because one of the wonderful parts of the game we play is that sooner or later we all face recovery shots from the trouble our poor shots happen to find.
