The challenge in hitting this type of wedge shot from a tight lie is to make certain that the bottom of your swing arc is perfectly positioned so that your club kisses the dirt immediately after it makes contact with the ball.
And maybe it’s just me but every time I miss an approach shot and have to try to save par I need to carry a bunker a creek or a tier on the green. This is where the value of the high soft shot comes into play: It’s the perfect solution to clearing trouble and landing the ball softly and with a minimal release.
Worse yet you typically run into them following a soaring approach that just missed its mark. (Skulled shots don’t bury). Instead of “sweeping” “gliding” or “scooting” your wedge through the sand here you have to bury it.
