Golf Wedge Play Game: Knockout


This is a fun game that will help to hone your wedge play skills and improve your focus – and the better you get, the more challenging it becomes!

How to Play

Start by setting up the practice area that you use for Golf Wedge Play Drill 201 – Touch: Skill Development, with precisely marked distances, every 10 yards, from 30 to 120 yards.

Play wedge shots to the first marked distance until you “knock out” that distance by landing a ball within 3 yards of the target.

Proceed to the next marked distance and play shots to it until you knock it out, and so on for each of the 10 marked distances.

Your score is the total number of shots it takes to knock out all 10 marked distances.

Once you are proficient, consistently knocking out all 10 distances with 15 shots or less, reduce the target area for a knockout to 2 yards, and you are at elite level when you make the target radius 1 yard.

It is important that you perform your full pre- and post-shot routine for every shot.  Read the conditions, and carefully determine the club required to pitch the ball close to the target each time.  Take your time to visualise the shot, try the right amount and react to the target.  Use your post-shot routine to actively build your self-image and learn from your mistakes.

When playing this game, you should be paying full attention and trying your best to make every shot.  Be competitive!

Always record your score in your practice session log, you can use the scorecard above, and try to beat your personal record each time you play this game.  The competitive edge is crucial.

After you play, take the time to record your score and make notes in your practice session log of any mistakes, and any distances or conditions that you particularly struggled with.  Think about what you can do to improve before the next time you play.
