If you’re at the edge of the distance you can hit your wedge on an approach shot, it might be better to take a longer club that easily covers the distance and make a shorter, softer swing to reduce your margin of error, says top-100 teacher, Tom Stickney.

    Where’s the pin? Where’s the trouble? That dictates shorter or longer club.

    First of all, Tom, I like how you get to the point right away and stay on the point, unlike many other people who put up instruction videos.

    Second, if you calibrate your wedges a la Dave Pelz, the problem you speak of never comes up.

      Why wouldn’t you? No matter how you calibrate your wedges, you’re eventually going to have borderline yardages that require a choice of hitting one club hard or another club easy.

      What if it’s not wedges? What if you have to hit want to hit a 6 iron into a 7 iron position because you just want to fly it in lower and with less spin, for example. Duh
