We’ve all been there, staring down 20 yards of sand followed by a mere 5 yards of green before the pin. You know what happens next, either you use your normal sand wedge shot hoping it’ll land just at the start of the green without rolling too far from the pin, or you decide to play it safe and simply over shoot the pin simply hoping to stay on the green.
Neither option is very good. In the first instance you’ll most likely hit it short with another bunker shot to follow. And in the second option a double bogie is all too likely.
Long Bunker Shots Don’t Have To Be Hard.
That’s right, with the right club these shots are quite simple. For these situations you need a shot that is all flight and little or no roll. That means high loft and tons of back spin. With this combination you can swing aggressively (with none of the decelerating or hesitation that always leads to mishaps) and give yourself an easy par, maybe even a birdie putt if your game is on. The MZ-65 Money Zone Wedge was designed with this shot (and many others) in mind.
The simple fact is you will rarely practice these long bunker shot often enough nail down the kind of precision required to get it right, if you’re using a sand wedge. They only happen once every few rounds. With the MZ-65 you don’t need to practice this shot to get it right. As long as you hit the MZ-65 on the range every once in a while, just to nail down your distances, you’ll be able to use it to get out of trouble with confidence.
The secret is in the loft, the box grooves, and milled micro-grooves. This combination puts so much spin on the ball that there is virtually no roll. Just pick your distance, swing accordingly and watch the look on your buddies faces as your ball sits right where you wanted. With no roll to account for, no bad breaks, holes, thick clumps of unseen grass, or anything else to screw things up, these shots get a whole lot easier.
We all know that confidence is a big part of playing great golf. Being able to approach these tricky shots aggressively will give you much more confidence in your swing, resulting in fewer errors and lower scores.
So do yourself a favor and check out the MZ-65 Money Zone Wedge right now.
