The 60 yard wedge is probably the hardest for regular joe golfers. This is the shot I practice the most. This IS the shot that Tiger practices most too. (and probably more than 50% of the tour players)

The difference between Tiger and rest of the tour player is that he can hit the 60 yard fade and the draw. He will be able to work the ball even though he’s not hitting it far.

Well here’s simple guideline for practicing your 60 yard wedge:

1. keep your golf grip super light for distance control

2. Rhythm, rhythm, and rhythm

3. Try to hit it in the middle or slightly inside of your sand wedge.

4. Try to hit the ball only, no divot for super control. Whenever you make a big divot, you are inviting dirt into your clubface grooves, which causes your ball to either:

- bounce too much after landing

- fly too long

5. It’s just a smaller version of your full swing. Master this shot and it will help all other parts of your ball striking.

6. If this helped you, leave a comment! :)

P.S. Youtube video might be hard to see, but that ball landed 5 feet from the pin.
