One of the toughest shots you can face around the green is when the ball nestles up against the collar. It's hard to get a putter on the ball and chipping is a mere guessing game, as you might catch it fat and leave it way short or catch it thin and skull it across the green.
In this video segment, Michael Breed, host of The Golf Fix, demonstrates how to hit a bladed wedge on purpose to escape this tough lie.
The key is to take a putting stroke with an open sand wedge, contacting the ball on the equator.
It'll take some practice to learn to trust it, but it'll save you a lot of strokes around the greens.
