#196: Creating A Consistent Pitch Shot For Golf

Creating A Consistent Pitch Shot For Golf

Hey there, Tiff, The Lady Golf Teacher here, would you like to become more consistent with your pitch shots? I hear you saying "yes, I would love to!"

Okay, don’t go anywhere, I’m going to show you a really simple way to gain better consistency with your pitch shots with this really simple technique.

Something really simple, if you are 15 metres or 20 metres from the

green and you have to get the ball up onto the green and you are really struggling with doing that. 

So, let’s have a look at how to gain that consistency in pitching up onto the green. A really good place to do this, in the sense of wanting some thick luscious grass to do this on. Don’t do it on really thin grass because you are not going to get the feeling right now. If you can get an opportunity to go on some this luscious grass, do that because you still need to hear the club

hitting the grass and that’s how we can get the ball to go up into the air. It’s much easier to do it on a thick surface versus having something that is thin and hard to hit off.


When you do the setup for your pitch shot, I want you to think of your left arm, your right arm and your shoulders like a triangle. What we want to do with the triangle is to maintain it the whole way through.


Going back with the lovely triangle, we make contact and have a lovely triangle and then come through, and we still have a lovely triangle.

Something really simple that helps get rid of the little flicky stuff that goes on.


I’ll demonstrate what I mean and then you are going to go out and practice it!

Remember, triangle back , triangle through.


Having a go, triangle, triangle and you can see how I have been able to maintain the triangle back and through and hold that position at the end.


One more for the road triangle, triangle. Alright, so something really simple like that, go out there and practise it.

Step 1 makes a lot of sense. Like that you also talked about turning your body towards the target.

Tracey Stephens

That was good, also known as the Y Shot, but nothing about how you contact with the ball?

Pauline

Thank you Tiff, you made that shot look very simple. I can’t wait to go out and try it.
