How To Spin Your Wedges
Spin is a tricky thing. When you’re trying to avoid it — say, on a tee shot, where sidespin puts you in the trees — it’s easy to make it happen.
To really put stop on it, take one less club, so you’re making a more aggressive swing. With a steep angle of attack, hit the ball while keeping your hands and wrists firm. Your divot should be a shallow scrape pointing straight at the target — not a worker’s trench.
Your impulse might be to play the ball back. Don’t. Play it an inch in front of center with a short iron so you can hit it higher. A high shot will come in more vertically and roll out less, enhancing the effect of the backspin.
