Quick Fixes – with Anders
Without a doubt the most frequent request I face is “how do you create backspin like the Pros?” I will now share the truth with you but first there is a set of golden criteria which have to be met:
1 Soft covered ball such as a Pro V or similar.
2 Clean and sharp grooves.
3 Tight lie on short grass
4 Descending and accelerating blow
5 Strike from the middle of the face.
Once these 5 laws have been adhered to we can get on with the technique needed to create the exciting spinning wedge shot.
1: The set up has the hands slightly forward, ball in centre of the stance, and weight favouring the front foot.
This helps to create the downward strike needed.
2: The backswing needs an early wrist set as the shoulders turn and begin to pull the hips into a slight turn to the top of the backswing.
3: The downswing has a definite shift of weight onto the ball of the left foot but critically the angle of the shaft remains lagging behind the left arm for as long as possible.
4: Impact has the hands even further forward than address and 80% of the weight on the left side.
This creates the downward strike and hits ball before turf.
5: It is very important to accelerate into a full finish even if you had a shorter backswing to maximise the spin.
You should finish facing the target with hips,chest and shoulders.
Practise these golden rules and you may just see the ball taking one bounce and ripping back towards the hole just like the big boys!
