Mechanics Of The Distance Wedge Stroke
The distance wedge swing is the swing that you will most likely use from 40-80 yards. The goal is to make solid contact and control the amount of spin and height. To ensure solid contact, we are going to set up with a slightly narrowed stance compared to our stock swing and then lean toward so that our sternum (or chin) is about 2 inches forward of the golf ball. We want to make sure that it stays here, or moves toward the target during the backswing in order to control the sequence of the downswing. It is also important to understand that this swing will be more upper body (chest, rib cage, and arms) dominated compared to the swing used for the driver.
