Dialing In Your Distance

This is a great feedback device for understanding how far you hit your wedge shots in the air. Take yardage sticks or cones and place them at 10-yard intervals starting at 30 or 40 yards and going up to your shortest full swing. For most, this will be around 70 or 80 yards. Practice your waist height, shoulder height, and full wedge swing until you know about how far you hit each club and swing. Write this on the back of your shaft so that you may check during on course play. When you get to the point where you can hit 3 out of 5 balls within a 5-yard range, then begin experimenting with ways to add 1 or 2 yards to your stock swings and vary the distances and swings more frequently.
