Pitching

 

The Simple Concept Of A Pitch Shot

Hello, I’m Brian Fitzgerald “The Golf Doctor”.

And today we are going to have a look at pitching, and just the simple concept for pitching.

Pitching is actually one of the simplest shots in golf. All we need to do when hitting a pitch shot is to start with the club down near the golf ball and then we try and return the club underneath the golf ball.

If we can do that we are going to hit a good pitch.

I’m going to show you a funny way to do it.

So here’s a strange way of teaching people how to hit a pitch shot. I quite often say to kids when I teach them “What makes the ball go in the air”?

It’s actually quite a simple thing. What makes the ball go in the air is the loft of the golf club. Provided there is loft on my club. And provide the club comes down underneath the golf ball. The ball will go in the air.

I’m going to show you how it’s done.

As you can see there, there is definitely loft on my golf club. I’ve got the ball in the middle of my stance. All I need to do is let the club get under the ball and the ball goes in the air. It’s pretty simple really isn’t it. Try that one at home.

Thank you for letting me help you with your golf.
