Go-To Short Game Shot: No Wrists

Leave the wrists out of your short game shots. I see many of my students attempt to garner extra spin and check on their short shots by flipping their wrists at impact. This does not help with consistency, or with solid contact.

When looking for a go-to short game shot, practice hitting half-shots with your lower irons. Make sure the golf ball is even with your lead ear (somewhere around the upper-middle of your stance), and remember to club up so you will not have to make a large swing. This will improve consistency and help your strike down at impact.
