Video Golf Tip | Pitching Clock Drill for Juniors

Kids, here is an easy way to learn how to pitch the ball. First of all I need to get you thinking like the hands on a clock. What I mean is this. If you take this club and hold the grip up at your hand and the clubhead hanging towards the ground that is pointing at the number six. If you flip the club the other way that is number twelve. The sideways are number nine and number three. Once again I want you thinking like the hands on a clock because I am going to let you swing the golf club. You are going to use that old elephant’s trunk that we talked about for so long. Then you are just going to put that golf club in your hand. So if I have to hit the ball a very short distance when I am pitching this ball, all I am going to do I set the club down behind the ball, heel, toe and sole. Put my feet together. Spread them out under my shoulders. Then I am just going to think eight o’clock, four o’clock, tick tock. Eight o’clock, four o’clock, tick tock. Just bring that club back and forth, let it brush the grass. Now if I have to go a little bit further, hands on the clock what am I going to do, I might go nine o’clock, three o’clock, tick tock. It looks something like this. Nine o’clock, three o’clock, tick tock. Nine o’clock, three o’clock, tick tock. So if you want to improve your pitching, just think like the hands on a clock.

Importance and Execution of Pitch Shots Watch Video>>

Hitting from Deep Rough Use a steeper swing with a slightly open clubface, but make sure you get back on the fairway
Push and Pull Shots If your divot is pointing straight and your ball is going right or left then your shots are off target because your clubface is opened or closed at impact
Chip From Buried Rough When you are buried in deep rough just off the green try this great trick to always get the ball on the putting surface
