Know Your Distances

Golf distance control tips

You have different lofted wedges and short irons for a reason. Yet many of us grab the same club for every shot around the green. Learn the best for each situation. Chip one ball to every hole on the chipping greens using the same club. Then try the same shots with a different club. Keep going to different spots around the green, experimenting with wedges and short irons. This will help you realize which club is most suitable for a particular situation. You’ll also enhance your feel and fine-tune your touch.
