The Golf Fix: Learn to putt with your wedge
Michael Breed, host of The Golf Fix, demonstrates how you can use your wedge when you are stuck up against the collar of the green. Watch The Golf Fix Mondays at 7PM ET.Thanks for joining us on Golf Channel Academy. You know, trouble shots come in all different varieties and in all different occurrences. One of our biggest trouble shots is when it's just off the green. We've hit a shot. It's going onto the green, but it didn't quite spin. It's rolled through and it's rolled up against the collar there, and there's some grass in between the ball and the clubface that we don't quite know how to deal with. What are we gonna do? Well, it's a very simple thing. What I want you to do is simply practice putting with your sand wedge . When we practice putting with the sand wedge , what you're gonna find is that you can't putt and let the sand wedge glide along the ground. If we let it glide along the ground, it's gonna jump up in the air. You're probably gonna double hit it. Bad things are gonna happen. What I want you to learn how to do is how to putt effectively with your sand wedge and what's gonna happen when you do that is that trouble shot that you're gonna deal with isn't gonna be trouble anymore. Because when we putt with the sand wedge , what we're gonna do is we're gonna strike this ball in the center of the golf ball and it's gonna roll just like a putt. So, when your golf ball gets up on the collar there and you've got some grass that's behind the back of the ball, well, now, what you're

Even some of the players on the PGA Tour still hit down on the ball, I suppose if you absolutely want to totally maximize distance at the expense of consistency, hitting perhaps slightly up would be the way to do it. But that's, you know, very wild, very inconsistent. Holly, pull your club behind that ball. Here's what I would suggest for almost everybody who plays golf and you remember in the show, Tiger Woods took a little divot after the ball, Rickie Fowler took a little divot after the ball, Gary Player who also took a

Plus get some tips from the Golden Bear and Holly Sonders will join Hall to assist with drills and help viewers with their questions.-Thank you, Holly. This week's book, Take A Tip from Me by Jack Nicklaus . I actually it was the first book he ever wrote. It came out in 1964. Anyway, got a wonderful piece about how to finish the back swing and start the down swing. And he talks about how the last 12 inches of hand speed in the back swing and the first 12 inches of hand speed in the down swing should feel to be the same. Now, very few people do that and the ones that do are really good players. Most people are probably too slow going back and too quick starting down. So take a tip from Jack Nicklaus . Feel how the club changes directions as if a pendulum. Feel like the end of the back swing and the start of the down swing are about the same. Let's see what we can do. Well, that one wasn't too bad. The computer didn't like it but I did. -No, I saw it and it was a good one. With 18 major victories and 73 wins on the PGA Tour , I have no problem taking a tip from Jack Nicklaus . I have-- -And neither do I. -I think I know what time it is. It's time to give them a homework. -I

One of my favorites, a Greg Norman type of waggle, an Annika Sorenstam type of waggle, the great Seve Ballesteros choose to flex the elbows a little bit. But, whatever you do and keep moving, don't let the tension set in. So, there's no great-- there's no great tension in that swing. The third drill I've got, and again, is to do with keeping the tension out of it. This is a practice swing drill. This isn't the one that you hit balls with. Well, it is the one I've used on the golf course . As I'm swinging back out, I'll take my left foot, step across the right, swing back and then through. I guessed once you practised it, you can actually hit balls that way. I wouldn't necessarily expect to hit it straight. What does that do? It demands of you a nice smooth transition down into the ball. And, the last one I've got and I've hit thousands of balls like this in my time. To
