The art of wedge play is to choose the correct shot for the given circumstances and then make that shot based on an adjustment to your known numbers.
Knowing how to do this, how to judge the shot, and then to hit the ball solidly to a precise distance, comes with intelligent practice.
Being able to execute these shots reliably out on the course, even under immense pressure, is all about process.
In your mind, the process of evaluating a shot needs to be more important than the shot itself.
The following is the full process that we teach and use ourselves. It’s not complicated, and it doesn’t slow down play, but it does require focus and discipline. It also takes a lot of practice.
