Common mistake: You try to fly a sand or pitching wedge to the hole and come up short.
The right play: Simply adjust your setup to get more mileage out of the easier-to-control pitch-and-run shot.
How to do it:
Keep the clubface closed through impact and try to catch the ball closer to the toe this will create topspin.
Take one less club, but set up as you normally would.
Close the clubface slightly and take the club inside.
