Master the 30 - 50 Yard Pitch Shot

Updated: Mar 28

Learn to master the setup and technique for a high pitch around the greens


In this video I describe the proper setup and technique for pitching from the fairway cut as well as out of the rough. A few things to keep in mind when setting up to play this shot from a tight fairway lie are listed below.

  • Ball position center

  • Club face slightly open

  • Slight forward shaft lean (club shaft almost vertical)

  • Weight starts forward (60%)

I also cover what I call "reading the lie" when in the rough. The lie dictates how you are able to play the shot. Sometimes we are forced to take our medicine and play to the safe area rather than going over the deep bunker to try and get the ball closer to the hole.
