A Simple Wedge Shot to Escape Greenside Jail

From John Kostis On April 10, 2020
In golf, playing away from danger is often the best course of action. But we've all been there, despite our best-laid plans – short-sided, tough lie, trouble short, trouble long, no margin for error.... Some of us will take our medicine, get back into play and hope for no worse than bogey. Others will roll the dice and go for the hero shot, laying a lob wedge wide open, closing our eyes and swinging with all our might. The results in either case are almost always discouraging.

What if we told you, though, that there's an easier, higher percentage play that will invariably save you strokes when you find yourself in trouble areas around the green? Well, you're in luck, because Titleist staff member John Kostis has a solution - a simple visual aid that will help you set up correctly and use the bounce of your wedge properly – the big keys to hitting a high, soft pitch from tricky lies.
