Split Grip Club Throw - Finesse Wedge
Golfers who struggle with their wedges and finesse shots will often create an unnecessary amount of lag. As we have mentioned before, we want to be careful about bringing the mechanics of our "stock" full-swing to the short-game. Ultimately, to fix this pattern, we need to train & improve the "cast sequence"; that is, we need the club (or our extremeties) moving faster than our core (larger muscles).
A great way to feel this is simply by adopting a split hand grip; this puts more power and leverage in the arms (similar to hockey) and should provide the feeling of the club dropping or being thrown into impact. With practice, this will create more consistent contact and the ability to control the flight of your wedges in and around the green.
