Wedges, Your short game solution book by James Sieckman.
When pitching it’s important to keep the spine at the same angle on the backswing, downswing, and finish. If someone calls you “spineless” it means they think you are weak. If you don’t keep your spine steady, your wedge game will definitely be weak!
Step 1: Watch
Watch the video.
Step 2: Spine Angle
Hit 10 pitches from 40 yards keeping the same spine angle on the backswing, downswing, and finish.
Step 3: Keep Score
Keep score for the 10 shots by tracking how many balls you got within 6 feet of the hole. You get one point for each ball you get within 6 feet. The maximum score is 10.
0 points = Ball outside 6 feet
1 point = Ball within 6 feet
