Game Improvement - Pitching
Monthly Golf Tips
Picture where you want the ball to land and how you see it getting there. Select the club that will allow you to do this.
Take a slightly wider stance than you would for chipping and distribute your weight about 60-40 in favour of the front foot.
Take a soft grip on the club, gripping about an inch down the grip. Position the ball just back of centre of the stance; this will help to make a descending blow onto the ball.
Swing the club back until your arm and the club shaft form a 90° angle. Follow through should be a mirror image of this position, which should be Completed with weight on the front foot.
