Trick To Knowing Your Perfect Wedge Distances

Once amateur golfers get inside their full swing wedge distance, too often they rely simply on feel as opposed to a measurable swing to hit yardages. Golf being such a feel-based game means that no two days are the same, and therefore your distance control can fluctuate from round to round.

SwingU instructor Ryan Rustand employs a simple trick that will take some practice to dial in, but will mitigate your big misses from scoring yardages.

While some players prefer using a clock face as their point of reference, Rustand uses body parts — shins, knees, hips shoulders, head — to know what distance certain wedges go.
