Travis Fulton: Better wedge play
Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for TOUR Academy TPC Sawgrass, teaches how to knock it close with your wedges.Thanks for joining me on Golf Channel Academy. I'm Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for Tour Academy TPC Sawgrass and I wanna talk to you about approach wedge play. And when I say approach wedge play, that could be anywhere from say, 50, 60, on out to 120 yards for some of you. These are scoring shots with our wedges, and the key concept here is proximity to the hole. If you can hit the golf ball closer to the hole. Then you can make more putts. And we're talking about proximity to the hole we have to have control of the club face through impact. The most common error with approach wedge play is at impact is we lose our spine angle.

He finished here-fifth here last year. In 2010, he finished second, OHL classic, at Mayakoba. And the other thing is this, that he finished just outside the top five at Greenbrier last season, another classic golf course, obviously not an exotic location but this is about as exotic as it gets and to have the combination of exotic and classic on a rock in the Pacific Ocean to me really, really incredible. There's something about Brian Stuard and these locations. He says he likes the classic designs, very comfortable and you put him near a beach and the man can play some golf. -It's interesting isn't it? -And I think it's-I think it's all about attitude because sometimes you go to these golf courses and they might have a little bit of a resort-type feel. There might be golf courses you get a lot of outside play. Some players can have a bad attitude about that. You're also dealing with a lot of grain, a lot of wind. He seems to have a really good attitude
