Tips On Golf Swing: The Ideal Wedge Set For Shorter Courses

One of the best tips on golf swing is to select the ideal wedge set for shorter courses. More specifically, one of the best tips on golf swing is to select the ideal wedge set when playing par three courses.

Many shorter par three courses have several holes that are within the 80 to 120 yards in distance from the tee markers to the center of the green.

Assuming you typically hit your lob wedge about 80 yards, you certainly would want to include a lob wedge in your set when playing shorter par three courses at such distance.

Also, it is not unusual to find some holes on shorter par three courses that are around 90 yards from tee to green.

If you typically hit a  sand wedge between 90 and 100 yards, you definitely would want to include a sand wedge in your set for shorter par three courses.

You may also encounter some holes on shorter par three courses in the neighborhood of 100 yards from the tee marker to the center of the green.

If you hit a full gap wedge between 100 and 110 yards, you likewise should include it in your set when playing such holes.

Many golfers can hit a full wedge shot between 110 and 120 yards and should include a full wedge in their set for shorter par three courses. You are likely to find holes of such distance.

In addition to a lob, sand, gap and full wedge, you should consider adding a 64 degree flop wedge to your set as well.

Although you may find few holes on par three courses in which you would use a flop wedge,  if you practice enough you should hit a flop wedge in 5 yard increments from about 65 yards in.

Thus ,it is an ideal club to use when missing the green with your tee shot, or your approach shot on par four holes.

So, the best tips on golf swing is to include a full set of wedges, including a flop, lob, sand, gap and full wedge when playing shorter par three courses.
