Around the Green » Pitch Key Points


The key to successful pitch shots is a consistent set up.

Follow these key points to knock it tight:

Set up square for the basic pitch shot.

With a pitch, your backswing will be dictated by the length of the shot; how far to your landing spot.

Legs more active; your hips turn and rotate through a pitch shot. I like a hip-width stance.

Weight is balanced or slightly favoring front leg.

Ball is placed according to your desired ball flight and lie.
