Being able to play 50m wedge approach shots on a slightly lower trajectory with good spin,
will add control to your short game. It will help you hit shots closer.

So how do you create spin with your wedge?
You learn to control ‘SpinLoft’. SpinLoft equals your dynamic loft (the loft of the face at impact)
MINUS your angle of attack. There is a range for maximum spin – between 40 and 50°

So an attack angle of -4° with a dynamic loft of 38° will create a spin loft of 42°.
That’s a good number and, providing you’re playing with a premium ball,
a clean and dry wedge with sharp grooves,
and making solid contact, you’ll create real stopping power.

So why use a steep angle of attack to create a higher spin loft?

Above about 50° of spin loft, spin starts to be reduced!

That’s a startling discovery, isn’t it? If the spin loft is too high, it seems the ball slides up the face of the wedge without friction creating enough spin.

Being able to shoot the ball in with a slightly lower trajectory and
the spin to check the ball quickly makes distance control so much easier.
