One of the best wedge shot tips I can give you online is to play the ball further back in your golf setup. This allows you to create a steeper angle of attack that delofts the club at impact. This is the key to hitting a wedge shot low that cuts through the wind yet stops quickly once it lands on the green.
To avoid hitting the golf ball fat on your wedge shot, you'll want to start with your weight slightly more forward than normal as well. This well ensure you hit the golf ball first and get clean contact which is critical for maximizing spin on the golf ball.
When working on wedge shot drills, use these two key setup changes, plus the bonus third wedge shot tip I give in the video to start hitting it close to every pin.
