Description

Even very skilled golfers get terrified around the greens at times. Hit a couple pitch shots fat and lay the sod over the ball or skull one into your playing partners bag and your confidence is shot for the round. This video shows you how to never hit it fat again.


Video Practice Points
  • Unlike a full swing, a pitch shot is not about power, but finesse and control
  • Most importantly, it takes a lot of spin, so you need a lot of loft - a 60° wedge is ideal
  • Imagine slipping the blade under the ball, instead of hitting down on it
  • Move the ball up in your stance and keep the hands soft for some extra release to add loft through impact
  • Set up square, weaken your grip, and get a little knee & hip rotation so you come through very shallow
  • Hinge the right wrist a little to keep the club face shut - the hands should still lead the club at impact
