6-7-8 irons are not designed to chip it around the green- golfers are doing it backwards because they don't have the right equipment.
Phil could bump and run everything but he knows that if he flies it to the hole –- he's in control and it's much easier to take the guesswork out, plus -- a lot more fun.
There is a reason he is the best short game player in the world.
Is he known for the bump and run or the high flop shot?
There’s a reason all of the pros try to model him.
You would never bump and run or putt the ball from off the green if you had confidence in your traditional wedge.
The truth is –your wedge was never designed to open the face.
You are doing it dead wrong and it’s not your fault
All wedges are designed to sit on the ground square and once you open the face it doubles the amount of bounce.
Causing blade shots that rocket over the green.
Fat shots that go 4 feet in front of you.
Big Manufacturers don’t design super lofted wedges because the pros don’t need them, but you do.
They have the hands of a skilled surgeon and 100 hours to practice a week – plus they play on Augusta National-like fairways every day of their life.
Thin fairways and tight lies make it almost possible for the weekend warrior golf to hit the high flop or lob shots to the pin.
When you open a traditional wedge, you are doubling the effective loft and its wrecking your short game.
And everything in between.
