Golf Tip of the Fortnight
Tip on Pitching from Thick Rough
Many of my tips include a reference to keeping your hands soft and relaxed. But this week, during the U.S. Open, an exception comes to mind: if your ball is sitting down in the rough near the green and you need to hit a lofted pitch shot, it's
important to keep your hands more firmly in control of the club (tighter than you normally would). The long grass may grab the club and not only stop it, but also twist it if you're not holding on fairly tightly. Also focus on making sure that your
club continues to accelerate through the bottom of the swing and that the blade maintains its directional orientation as it passes under the ball (take some practice swings in grass that is of a similar thickness to the lie your ball is in to feel how
much the club will be affected).
I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
