Its continuous bounce sole makes fluffing a thing of the past.
It defies deceleration...
because its light swing
weight forces you to hit the ball hard giving you more spin control and
yet safe in the knowledge it wont go too far.
Its 60 deg. loft and nickel milled face enable you to master bunker
shots, low checking chips or pitches and high lobs.
Having just the one thought in your mind "I must get this up to the
hole" and knowing you will still get good distance even if you hit the
ground first does wonders for your self confidence.
Use it for a wide variety of shots from 80 yds in..
It is particularly good at the 50 yd bunker shot when you want to hit
the ball clean.
It will bludgeon your ball out of the heather when no other club will and
knowing you cant hit very far inspires your shots from long grass
But there is a downside to O Wedge.....
you will be facing more and more short putts and you may not like that !
THE QUICKEST WAY TO LOWER YOUR HANDICAP IS TO IMPROVE YOUR SHORT GAME
Consider this... It is a psychological fact that the closer we come to
our goal the more nervous we are. You dont see pros top shots with
their driver but you do see them fluff chips and miss short putts.
my advice for pitching and chipping is:
Set up as if for a full wedge swing.
Place feet wide and square to target to limit body movement, aid your instinctive feel for distance and
Grip firmly, down the club...the shorter the club the easier the shot (use 10 finger grip to aid hinging and feel).
Hinge your wrists immediately and use a short back swing and fast hand
action through the ball.
(To hit a nail with a hammer...you don't swing, you hinge back and
hit. see 18 min video)
O Wedge will play this way perfectly because it is shorter,
lighter, with (2009) legal grooves and a nickel milled face for soft
feel and maximum spin control and a continuous bounce sole to help
With O Wedge the short game can be as easy as tossing the ball
under arm to the hole.
