Aim the club face (of your most lofted wedge) at your target and aim your body 45 degrees to the left (for righties). Your clubface should now be lying wide open giving it extra loft. Your ball position should be inside your left heel.
When executing this shot, you need a soft grip and relaxed arms. The back swing is going to be more vertical than your normal swing. You should feel your wrists hinging sooner on your back swing. Allow the club to swing down softly to the golf ball so the clubface gently slides under the ball. This will produce a high, soft ball flight. Remember, this shot is typically only a 30 yard shot or less.
You will have to swing a little bit harder than normal to get the ball to the hole because you are lofting your club so much more than usual. Swinging harder will decrease your margin for error – and remember, don’t forget to follow through. Your chances of hitting the ball thin and skulling it over the green is greater thereby requiring you to keep your head down and still. Try it, you’ll be glad you did!
Have fun, Joshua
