We play more shots from 100 yards and under than any other length of shot so good distance control with our wedges is paramount if we want to lower our scores.
The clock face drill, gives us a simple idea to gauge accurate distance, the key is to imagine you are standing inside a clock face and apply three different lengths of swing, 8 o’clock, 9 o’clock and 10 o’clock as shown above.
Simply choose the right club and length of swing and you’ll soon start knocking out the flag on those awkward short pitch shots.
Remember to develop ‘feel’ for your distance control, constant practice is a must.
