Do you dread having to play a high lob shot across a greenside bunker?
Do your hands shake when you need to carry a pitch over a ridge to a tightly tucked pin?
And what about sand shots, especially when you’re close to a tall lip – are you terror-stricken like a deer in headlights?
If you answered “yep” to any of these questions, that’s certainly understandable.
Because you’re probably like most amateurs:
Stuck with clubs that demand next-level skills to execute common shots.
In fact, you might use the same club for all these situations – a sand wedge or 60° lob wedge, for instance.
In which case, you may think you’ve got enough loft to get the job done.
You might think the sole and clubhead are plenty forgiving.
And if you’ve considered the lie angle at all, you probably feel it’s perfectly fine.
