17 discovergolf.com.au Solid Wedge Play rotation drill tip by NADENE GOLE A reliable wedge game will lead to shooting better scores. On the other hand, an erratic wedge game will lead to much frustration. Here’s a simple drill to help you piece together a solid approach to the green. Headcover drill 1. Place a headcover under your lead arm. 2. Make a half to three-quarter swing with your wedge. 3. On the downswing, rotate your chest through the ball to face your target. Comment If you keep your arms, club and chest moving together, the headcover will stay in place. If your arms and body get out of sync, the headcover will fall. This is a very effective drill if you are striking your wedges either too heavy or too thin. It will alleviate ‘scooping’, which is a common fault. Scooping occurs when your body fails to rotate through to the target and stalls at impact. In this case your club keeps going, causing your lead wrist to break down. The clubhead then bottoms out behind the ball. Want to achieve your goal in 2016? Enroll in one of Nadene’s golf schools at Victoria Golf Club. Click here for school dates and more information.
