3/4 PW, choked down, almost a knock down.

Still struggle hitting less than full swings, something else I need to practice

The 2/3 swing is how I learned to hit the ball well. I noticed early on that whenever I punched out of woods (which was quite often) I made great contact - hands ahead, compressing the ball with downward contact. So, I decided to simply play that swing permanently.

 

The 2/3 - 3/4 swing is a very important tool IMO, you should def take the time to learn it.

52* wedge, how much of a swing depends on where the flag is. More to it than the yardage to the center.

I would probably open my 52 to a 54 and take a smooth full swing. 80% of the time it works... 20% I have a skully. After the shot i swear I'll use a pitching wedge next time.

I never use a full swing on a wedge. A wedge is a finesse and control club. 80% gap wedge for me.

 48 Pitching wedge if I can run it up, 60 SW if I want to drop it like a bomb.

I don't really have one right now.  I prefer to be at 90 or 110.

 

With my old clubs, 100 was a perfect, smooth sand wedge (56).  With my new set, I have a 54.5 and a 59, neither of which I have totally dialed in.  But for now, 100 seems to be right between the two ... so I will try and hit the 54.5 at 90% or so.

Same here.  I'll lay up to 100 whenever I can.

full 52  for me

3/4 PW,  little more umph with a GW

post #30 of 231

That's a perfect GW for me.

56*, full swing.

post #32 of 231

About an 80% 54* SW.

post #33 of 231

I'd generally prefer to lay up to smooth P wedge distance, which is why I hit a lot of irons off the tee, but from 100 my go-to is a shot I picked up from Bubba Watson's Golf Digest short game segment: with my 56 degree wedge, I put the ball well back in my stance, open up a bit, take a 3/4 swing, and pretty much try to imagine hitting the top of the ball. I get a nice knockdown shot that skips once and stops dead, and having it in the back of my stance keeps me from chunking it, which is my most common short iron/wedge flaw.

A lot of variables are not covered in that scenario but the yardage is just right for my sand wedge, so presuming the green is relatively flat and not much above or below me, that would be the club I'd choose.

post #35 of 231

I like to try and blade a sand wedge or fat a pitching wedge. d2_doh.gif

 

All kidding aside, that's a really good distance for me, about a 3/4 sand wedge one hop and stop.

post #36 of 231

Full 54 degree, high and stop it fast.
