The pitch shot is a huge part of my game. I am going through a transition phase of hitting the ball at 90% power inside of 125 yards instead of a full swing with my clubs. I have decided to make this change because of the greater control I have at 90%. This helps me hit my target better and helps lower the percentage of error I was experiencing with a full shot from in close. So the proper pitching technique is an area of focus at the time being.
I am sure many of you use the pitch shot often in your game. You have your own technique and I am not about to recommend changing if it is working for you. However, if you are experiencing some challenges, the following video by Noel Rousseau – Golf Pitching: 30-100 Yards Demands a Solid Technique – sums up my efforts very well.
As I continue to improve my game, I will use techniques explained in the video. Off all things mentioned, my weight distribution requires the most attention. After adjusting my approach to use more chip shots, I have noticed a more consistent result of being on the green. Now I need to work on being closer to the pin!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
