Resistance in Your Pitch
To build resistance into your pitching game you need a couple of drills that will encourage this into your swing. You need a quickie kind of pace. I met a few people like Venturi, Claude Harmon and also Johnny Rivolta, most of you would not know but he is in the Hall of Fame, a great teacher out in Palm Springs who is one of the best at teaching this shot. Venturi also worked with Rivolata. Johnny believed in a quick pace when you did this little quick pitch and what I added to that is a reverse right here where you whip the club right back to center. You resist the club right back, you retract the club. Boom and hold. It goes like this. Boom and hold. Boom, bring it back. Boom, bring it back. Those balls all came out unbelievably good. They had a lot of spin on them, hit solid and you will be surprised, it will take a little bit of practice, but you want to get away from this de-accelerating and that little retract drill, where you hit and bring it right back, really brings some speed into your swing and it really helps you with your resistance so that when you are out on the course and you hit and hold right here. That will make you so much more precise and so much better under any type of pressure. You will be real pleased if you can get that drill done.
