Golf Illustrated Wedge Play

Guest Author - Letta Meinen

This new edition of the Golf Illustrated magazine was of interest to me as it covered every angle of the wedge shots. Since I had been having trouble with my short game this was something I needed to read. This article 3 Ways to improve Your Wedge Play and Shoot Lower Scores Fast! was something I wanted to know more about. After reading this article I felt I needed a lesson from our Pro. I was amazed at how many things I was doing wrong when I read that article and listening to my Pro it became something I could work on to improve.

In the article it stressed stance and this is where I was all wrong, as the stance for the chip is much different that with the pitch. I also was all wrong on my motion to the ball on these shots. I had always prided my self on my short game but some bad habits had come into my swing through the ball on these shots. When I saw the diagrams of the proper stance I knew that was my mistake. The article was self explanatory but having my Pro explain the reasons for all these motions helped me a great deal. It will take practice and I have been doing this on a regular basis

Since our course was in the winter mode and we had hard ground and many places no grass so I knew my Pro would suggest the proper way to use the wedge around our greens. He also suggested I use my Sand Wedge when there were grassy areas but the pitch is difficult from hard bare ground. He also suggested since our area was very dry this winter that if possible to putt from off the green. It is a much safer shot that a trying a wedge that will be hit either fat or thin and neither one is a good shot.

The Golf illustrated magazine also had a section called The Wide World of Wedges as there is a vast array of wedges on the market. These wedges are of various lofts and will skill you can spin, land soft and pitch with consistency. I have three Callaway Great Big Bertha II Wedges now from the Sand, Pitching and a #10 iron that I use for long lofted shots over bunkers or water. It was interesting to get the latest information about new equipment. This was mostly stilted towards the men golfers but any woman can pick up tips in these magazines.

Since reading these articles and having my golf lesson I did finally make it into the 80ís as one Saturday I had my first 88. I am most grateful for having a Pro to talk to and who is willing to listen to our Lady golfers improve their game.
