Things to take note of with Finau's shot

  • How far the club moves/swings compared to his hands
  • Toe up at A2
  • Lots of speed (related to the first point)

But he doesn't seem to have any body rotation, maybe I'm just not seeing it?

Soft arms and importance of the body rotation on pitch shots.

Can't hit this shot with the leading edge 😀

 

 

Here's the YT vid top post creator, Bryan Pate, made on the soft right arm.

I'm trying to control my backswing length better on pitch shots. 

Is the feeling of the right wrist just hinging only a good feel for shorter pitches? I feel like I get into trouble because my normal backswing motion is to move the arms a lot. I tend to hinge late in my normal swing. I was using my TV as a mirror, and trying to mimic the the club movement to parallel as shown in the video of the OP. The only way I get there is by just hinging that right wrist.

It's not just a hinge, though, as you still want to roll to expose the bounce/glide.

But, yeah, it's more of a wrist thing than a "moving your whole arms thing."

I'm happy to have found this thread.  I had a guy show me this that worked with a very well known teacher here and he showed him this technique.  I never could get it down consistently and couldn't figure out why.  He didn't explain it like this though, so hopefully I can nail it now.

On this shot, or even a chip, when you put the weight forward, where on the foot should I feel that weight?  I've never known the proper way to have the weight forward.  Nothing feels right when I do it.  I feel like I'm way too stuck and can't pivot good.....I just feel way too uncomfortable when I try to put my weight forward.

Also, would float loading not encourage more forward shaft lean since the hands are moving forward on the downswing earlier than the club head?

Float loading adds more speed as the club has to catch up faster.
