Hey golfers, Troy Klongerbo here with USGolfTV, and today we’re going to talk about controlling your wedges. Now when hitting the ball certain distances out there, we all know that wedges are your scoring clubs, and every other club in your bag has a certain distance you hit it. Maybe your 8 iron is your 150 yard club; maybe your 5 iron is your 170 yard club; those are mostly on full swings.

Now I would suggest to you that with a wedge, you don’t want to go off of a full swing as much. Maybe you want to go with more of a tempo swing, maybe an 80 percent or a 75 percent.
The reason why that’s going to be important is because the harder you swing with a wedge, the more spin you’re going to put on it, the higher the ball is going to go, and the harder it’s going to be to control exactly how far you want to hit it.
So when trying to hit wedges a certain distance, I would suggest a couple of things. First of all, be very cognizant of your ball position. You might want to work that ball a little bit back in your stance, maybe just a fraction of an inch to an inch further back than you would typically hit one. You also maybe want to stand just a little bit closer to it, and just choke up a touch on that club.
Finally, it’s going to be important to swing not with full speed, not attacking the club with any sort of velocity; you’re just taking a nice maybe 85, 80 percent swing, and just making sure you’re just making flush contact with the ball.
What you’re going to notice is that ball is going to fly lower for you, it’s going to have less spin in the air, which lets the wind manipulate it less, but when it lands, it’s going to land with a very decisive bounce, stop; and that’s going to be huge when controlling your distances, and making sure that you’re scoring from these yardages.
