I put together this short video of Zach Johnson holing out a wedge to show “Why We Square-to-Square”.
By limiting the wrists’ involvement in the swing, and focusing on keeping our club face square to the path, we can improve our ability to hit the ball accurately and consistently…
A lot of the the students who have worked with me on the Square-to-Square swing have found themselves hitting pins, holing out from the fairway, and even making hole-in-ones.
The reason is pretty simple… especially with the shorter clubs, if you employ a strong grip, limit the “flipping” of the clubface, and use your body to turn through the ball, you’ll find that you can consistently put the divot in front of the ball, and hit the line you’re aiming for.
From there, all that’s left is to practice your distance control by burning-in your wedge positions (link to drill videos to learn this coming soon), and you’ve got the recipe to start getting deadly accurate in the “Scoring Zone” ( <= 120 yards from the pin).
Hope you enjoy the video, and let me know in the comments if you’ve had a favorite “Pin Seeker Moment” using the Square-to-Square!
