Need a bit of help identifying the cause of my wedge swings creeping way in to out.

Low cap guy, play a fade but my wedge game suddenly got bad. My divots point out right. Not sure what's going on. Iron and wood swings are fine...

Ball position with wedges is a bit forward of center.

Occasionally struggle with this as well, to disastrous results. Usually in my case it was my right hip turning towards the ball instead of staying quiet.

Could be a lot of things.

Getting too steep on AoA would be one.

No rotation, armsy swings...? I get armsy with wedges.

What are you trying to do with trajectory? What shots are you getting that you donít like?

Would if I had them. Problem showed up Saturday pre-round and stayed with me during the round so I don't have video. Pretty sure I'm getting armsy, disconnected, and just not rotating. Probably a bit of stand up at impact too.

This happens with long irons every now and then and I have to stand on the range and hit the biggest fades I can to get the club swinging left and my body rotating.  Probably do that on the range Saturday after I record a few swings.

Doesnt matter if I try to hit them high or low. Full or 3/4, they're all left out right and my divot points well right of my target. Pretty sure I know how to fix, need to capture some video shots Saturday.

Could be as simple as clubface at address. Iíve had this happen sometimes and when you really focus on clubface and get it right it can look very hooded compared to what your insincts think you should see. This might be to do with a lot of shots around the green having either a neutral or laid back shaft.

It’s a wedge, you don’t have to swing it like the other clubs.  Really steeper the better if you can control it .

Could be as simple as an alignment issue.

Issue was an old foe...backswing setting onto my right leg rather than into my right leg. Flatter shoulder turn than I like. A bit too flat and behind...

Shorter shots (inside 110) combine the above with an armsy, no lower body lead move down and your get the shoddy wedge play that snuck in.

Better coil, less left shoulder back in backswing and everything is crisp again. Even my irons. Path is fairly neutral. Slightly out to in, perfect for me.
