Don’t know about you but one of my pet peeves is heading over to the short-game practice area and seeing LOTS of nasty little deep divots. They come from players who don’t know how to properly use the bounce on a wedge to hit those pitch shots around the greens that the tour guys hit with ease.
Today PGA Tour veteran member Larry Rinker gives a really good lesson in how to use the bounce on your pitching wedge to hit those neat pitch shots without gouging your club into the ground and leaving those nasty little divots around the short game area.
First, Larry shows us how to find the low point of the shot.
His best feel drill is to learn to simply brush the grass without gouging into the ground.
Your weight will be forward, your stance a bit open to the line as well a the clubface.
The key to hitting nice pitch shots lies in the right hand, arm and wrist.
Larry shows how they work and how you can learn to release properly. Once you start to get the hang of it, you can practice these pitches using just your right arm, hand and wrist.
