Okay, so since the short shots are actually the most important shots in the game because if you hit a big drive and then you don't hit a good pitching shot, or a sand wedge, or a sixty degree wedge into the green, you might get a five, or a six, or a seven. So if you don't hit such a great drive but your next shot and your chips are good you can get pars and birdies. So that's why when you watch the pros on T.V. they're really focused on their chipping and they'll even lose, they'll drop a club, maybe they won't have a five wood or they won't carry a two iron, or they'll have an extra wedge. So, this is a sixty degree wedge, which the sand wedge that we've been demonstrating is a fifty-six degree wedge so it means that this one will hit a higher, steeper ball. So it's for shorter in. So the goal here is to get the ball real high so then when it drops it doesn't roll much further. A lot of times you'll get a lot of backspin on it and you'll see them back up. So the sixty degree wedge is a shot for probably fifty yards and in for most players. You really want to just have some fun with it but you've got to practice it a lot. You just want to get the ball nice and high so it lands in the green and stays there. It doesn't roll who knows the heck where. So you may want to investigate picking up a sixty degree wedge and working on it endlessly.
