My questions is what if i was to just think about the target when hitting a wedge? What kind of a swing would that produce? Would it be my wedge swing Ive had for 50 years or the new swing I've only practiced for six months. I feel like I need to have all three of these points in my mind to make the move but I cant do that and think of a target as well. I'd be very interested in your thoughts..."
