70-80 yards shot - Page 2

post #19 of 25

Because of the wedge's loft, the trajectory of a wedge shot, and the short distance involved, you really must have the face open with an out-in path to put an appreciable amount of curvature on a SW shot (are you sure it's not just a push?). I have tried to curve wedge shots when needed and never really suceeded. Well if that's really the case, you have to close the face at impact. Try to feel your right hand being more on top of the grip at impact.

I think this is the cause..... I think....

 

 

It is F if I aim at the pin so I have to aiming to the left.....

 

Thanks for the advice!!!

If i was to try to curve my wedge, i would have to put the ball back in my stance, and really deloft the iron, so that i could change the spin axis more. With a higher lofted club its very hard to curve the ball with a neutral swing because the spin axis is dominated by the loft of the club and less by the swing itself. 

 

So, if your slicing its telling me one thing, no matter what you perceive your target line is, your clubface is way open to the swing path. This means you could have a neutral swing path and have serious trouble keeping the clubface way to open. The most likely scenario is that you have a very aggressive outside in swing path with your wedges, inconjunction with an open clubface. If you say it starts left and goes right, if that is true, then you have a very severe outside in swing path.

Why do you assume a big outside-in path?  If he uses an open stance and aims his club face at the target, wouldn't that do it?

The reason why I believe it is best to open stance on shorter swings like this is because I need to feel the tension in my left arm as I am starting the downswing with my body.. But with shorter swings you don't get the arm and torso turned enough to feel this tension... Hence open your stance and you will being to feel the tension lower in the back swing.

No, because i can aim my clubface at the target, open my stance and hit a draw, so asking someone to say well i line up with an open stance and assume they have an over the top swing is wrong

 

I played for over 10 years aiming my driver 6 degrees to the right, and i hit a pull cut with an over the top swing. So aim and swing path can be or can not be related, i learned the hardway when i started aiming square and saw my ball flight and went, "OH insert expletive here"

Not with the ball moved 4" back.  That seems like an awful lot of "out" path to me.
