Video Golf Tip | Keep Your Pitching Simple

Most amateur golfers get themselves very confused with pitching. The reason for this is that when you pick up a magazine or watch a video and you see something like ‘stand 30 degrees open, open the clubface, take the club out-to-in, hold the face open and block your release.’ That’s all very confusing. These days the equipment is made perfectly to do the job for you. I strongly advocate at least a three wedge system. That would be something like a pitching wedge which has 50 degrees of loft, a mid-wedge that has 55 degrees of loft and then a lob wedge with 60 degrees of loft. So you can make the same swing with those three clubs and you have a medium trajectory, a high trajectory and then a lob trajectory pitch shot. Make a normal swing. Square stance and swing up and down the line just like you do with your full swing and let the club do the work for you. Don’t get yourself confused with all those theories that make you think the pros are the only ones who can do it. Get yourself set up normally, put the ball in the middle of your stance, make a normal swing and the loft of the club is going to lift the ball up in the air for you. Pitching is quite simple if we treat it like a simple swing. Don’t make it too difficult.
