is complete hogwash.
…and it seems a few of you caught on.
My point was to illustrate how complicated we make everything in golf. I took one small, simple idea…
“You should have a shorter swing with your wedges than your driver.”
…and I gassed it up with meaningless numbers and circular discussion to make it seem like I had some new and innovative idea (I obviously didn’t try very hard…LOL).
It doesn’t take a physicist to figure out a person who drives it 250 should not hit their wedges as far as a PGA Tour player or a former long drive champion…never mind farther.
Wedges are about controlling spin, trajectory and distance not how far you can hit them. The longer your swing is, the more difficult it is to control these things.
