A golfing technique most often used by the weakest golfer of the group. Faced with an obstacle the hand wedge can be used to clear a path to the green. The average flight of a hand wedge is around 8 feet though they have been know to fly as far as 20 yards.
Nick has been spraying his drives and I haven't seen him hit a nice shot all day, yet I'm only one stroke ahead of him. Someone needs to check his bag for a hand wedge.
