Re: How exactly do you put backspin on your wedges?

Then again the pin might be located right at the front edge of the green with a bunker just short of the green. In that situation they might want to hit it well past the hole and draw it back to the hole rather than play for the hole and run the risk of coming up a tad bit short.
