How To Make The Most Of Your Ultra Lob Wedge On The Golf Course
Normally, pro golfers have the habit of carrying several wedges of different loft in their kit bag. The loft height of the wedges varies between four to six degrees. If you are proficient in covering long greens, four club wedges will be sufficient. Otherwise, you can combine three or four different clubs such as the lob wedge, pitching wedge, sand wedge, etc. To challenge your friends as well as other golfers.
Lob wedges offer a loft at heights varying between 60 and 64 degrees. However, when you use an ultra lob wedge, the ball will cover a height of as much as 70 degrees. The lob wedge helps a golfer hit a perfect shot with 100% precision. It is helpful when you play on a course layout including several hazards and natural wild trees. Typically, when you hit using a lob wedge on the narrow fairway, the ball will cover up to 60 yards of the golf greens. The chip shot using a lob wedge will cover up to 40 yards.
A good swing shot using the lob wedge depends on the correct ball position. Ball position in the center of the stance will generate more swing speed at impact. The backswing is towards ¾ of the body rotation in order to cover a longer drive.
You can also play a short drive by rotating your arms fully behind the back to generate more speed during the downswing and at impact. At downswing, the hands should be parallel to your chest to deliver more ball speed.
At setup, you must adopt a narrow stance with your feet closer to the ball position. Keep the ball in the center of the stance with your feet placed at the left side of the target. Lean forward slightly and hold the club shaft firmly to keep an open clubface at impact.
You must get a higher speed on the clubhead at impact, if you are using a lob wedge. The higher speed will cause the ball to travel at a higher trajectory but travels less distance. Hence, a shot hit with a lob wedge will resolve the problem as the ball will travel a longer distance and that too at a good height.
