A Complete Tutorial On How To Use A Lob Wedge On A Golf Course

The lob wedge is usually referred to as one of the shortest ever wedges in the game of golf that is used to score some distance. By description, you will be able to tell it apart from all the other wedges because of the fact that its shaft is considerably shorter than all the others. Other than that, it also has the greatest loft so far.

This is normally a club that is a prerequisite for a player that has already advanced their game to a level that beginners and semi-pro players can only dream about. For the sake of learning, a beginner or any other player that is not an accomplished professional can be excused for using the pitching wedge in all the pitching situations relevant.

In the event that you are able to get your hands on the lob wedge, you need to understand the fact that there is nothing wrong with learning one or two things about how to use it effectively. Even when you are still learning to ply your trade on the green, it never hurts to learn one or two things that will make your work easier on the course, and your game better.

The following are some simple tips that will help you learn a few things about how to make the best use of the lob wedge on the golf course, and to ensure that you can use it perfectly:

  • Addressing the ball
  • Weight management

Addressing the ball

When you are addressing the ball, it is important to realize the fact that the ball will definitely have to stay within your stance, but forward. If possible make sure that you have it right ahead of your spine and you will make some good progress on this game.

Weight management

There is so little that can be said about weight management which we can consider to be news. Every player out there knows how important it is to distribute weight appropriately when they are playing, and this is something that will matter so much because without proper weight management, there will be no difference between how you use the lob wedge and how an average player uses it.

With these tips, one of the other things that you must also realize is that practice will go a long way in making sure that you are able to improve.

The Climate is Excellent

Portimao golf courses are in a region of Portugal that has an amazing climate. Portimao is close enough to the shore to enjoy the cool sea breezes, but far enough away that it doesn’t rain all of the time.

The Mediterranean and temperate climate also keeps the temperature fairly comfortable for golfing, which means that Portimao golf courses are ideal in almost every way in terms of weather.
