Pitch Shot

A pitch is slightly longer than a chip shot and thus requires a slightly larger swing. It is generally hit with a lofted club and expected to stop fairly quickly once reaching the green.

Did you know?

You can execute a pitch shot with almost any club with this form. Pitching with more loft will make the ball rise and drop quickly with very little spin, which is perfect for going over trouble areas. You can also pitch the ball with a less lofted club for more rollout on the green if no obstacles are in your way.  Perfect your pitch shot here.

What you need to know: A pitch shot requires you to have consistent Tempo, to Hinge the club properly in the backswing, and to Release the Arms and Hands to create proper contact.
