Pitch it ClosePitching EssentialsA pitch or pitch shot, usually played with a highly lofted club like a pitching or sand wedge, is designed to go a short distance with a high ball flight to land softly on the green. Here are some basic fundamentals to help you become a better short game player. 1. Stance is narrow and open2. Weight favors the target foot3. Hands, arms, and shoulders form a triangle with the hands ahead of the ball at address position4. Hinge your wrists on the backswing5. Weight is retained on target foot 6. Accelerate your swing on the downswing, keep hands moving7. Keep your target side firm as you finish swing8. Distance determines the length of the swing Putting Off the FringeRead the Fringe when Putting Off the Green Putting from off the green is often a much better choice than chipping or pitching the ball, especially when the grass is cut low. Remember to hover the putter slightly off the ground so that you don’t catch grass on your backswing and make sure you hit the ball firm enough to roll it through the taller fringe grass. Most people only read the green and overlook the fringe. You need to not only read the green for speed and break, but read the fringe as well.
