If you’re scoring in and around the 80s it's likely that you’re already using a softer golf ball. Assuming this is the case, then you're ready to introduce the One Hop and Stop wedge shot into your game. As Lynn McCool explains, it has a low flying ball flight and can be played with any wedge ranging from 52-60 degrees.

Set-up is crucial. Position the ball back in your stance, towards the back foot with your hands placed opposite the inside of your front thigh. At address, favour 60% of weight on your front foot.

Make a half or three-quarter backswing depending on the distance you need to hit the shot. Keep your hands soft when gripping the club, and as the backswing is reduced, hold the club further down the handle.

With the correct set-up your backswing is restricted, but avoid the temptation to pick the club up further. On the downswing, lead with the back of your left hand and maintain this feeling all the way through.

Keep the left hand/wrist solid and avoid the temptation to flick your right hand.

Make sure the wedge is clean!
