I'm a 11 handicap, decent off the tee, decent with mid to long irons, decent on chipping and putting....
My problem is hitting a 90~120 yard full wedge shots. ever since i shank few balls with SW hitting a 90~100 yard shot, i just freak out standing over a ball 100yds away. i worry about hitting it thin, thick or a shank. my arm and hand takes over and get quick when i try to hit these shots with SW(blade). the club just doesn't feel the same way compare to holding a 8 or even 9 iron.
so instead of trying to fix this issue, i've averted to just hitting a PW or 9 iron (thick cavity back) low knock down shot onto the green which i have no problem but usually not that accurate.
I know that most scratch/low handi guys' money distance is probably 90~100 holding a SW. i feel like i can bring my handi down to single and create more birdie opportunities if i can figure out how to hit a full SW with confidence.
Any tips on hitting a confident SW shot? should it be the same swing as my 7 irons swing?
