    I just took a quick look at your equipment and I see the problem. The secret is getting a quality set of wedges and replacing the wedges currently in your bag. I know this involves either buying credits or doing surveys to earn them but having good wedges is the best way to apply backspin but will also lower your score overall. If you don't want to do that then you will just have to learn the best way to play the roll out.

    Agreed.

    Another note, and one that many others might suggest, is to replace the Hybrid that you are carrying with another Wedge. Carrying 3 wedges, with evenly spaced yardages, is a must.

    So right, having better wedges and balls make all the difference!

    I agree that the hybrid should be dropped for the third wedge. However, to do that you need a 3i that has a longer distance and this will mean a better iron set.
