Struggling with pitching?

Pitching is a very important part of the game. We are not going to hit every green in a round of golf, therefore we have to rely on our short game to keep that scorecard looking pretty.

What I tend to find is when teaching and observing amateur golfers is that there is an excess usage of the wrists when striking the ball.

I like to keep short game lessons simple. I will explain now how I recommend to pitch and why this is going to help your game.

  1. Hinge and hold – When we take our backswing we have to set our wrists, this is going to help create a clean strike. Now, when we strike the ball, we have to maintain the hinge and turn our body to the ball. This is the first step in taking the wrists out of pitching.
  2. High to Low – This part is very important. ‘High to low’ is a concept I created to help strike the ball first. The idea is to get the club head high in the back swing (while keeping hands low) and the club head finishes low after impact. This will create a nice downward strike, making clean contact and creating better golf shots!

I hope you find this information useful, if you have any questions please send me an email at [email protected]

Have a great week.
