  1. Here's a brief video on golf pitching technique. Over the years this thread has gotten a LOT of updates, so I encourage you to read through this thread before commenting. However, one thing that hasn't changed is our belief in how this simple technique can save strokes and make pitching easier and even fun. This technique broadens the margin of error by using bounce or "glide" on the club, while allowing you to properly use speed to help control distance, get the ball out of tough lies, and get the ball closer to the hole. It is, by far, the best pitching technique out there, and is exhibited by the best PGA Tour players. There are plenty of testaments to its functionality throughout this thread (and site), so please enjoy, and thank you for watching. Edit (2020-06-24): Day 7 here has a good video, and some notes:
  2. Over the course of the last year, based in information gained from this site, from LSW, taking lessons, and from data about my own game learned from 9 rounds with my Arccos, I have become a much better and golf. Furthermore, I have become much better at understanding how to improve my own game. I know what a good full swing both looks and feels like for me. when it's not right, I know how to use video to understand where I'm off and how to correct it. My full swing still has a very long ways to go, but at the same time, It has come a long ways. Additionally, I feel that I have the information, tools, and understanding of how to continue to bring it along it along further on my own. Additionally, I have come to understand that I am a much better putter than I had originally thought. It is the aspect of my game that is the closest to scratch. Additionally, as we know about separation value, it's the easiest to improve in a short amount of time. Gonna take Aimpoint express to tighten up my reads a bit, but other than that this aspect doesn't need a large % of my practice time. --but, here is my flaw-- My pitching/chipping is terrible. It is very bad. I mentioned this in my "what I've learned from Arccos" thread. From inside of 40 yds, I am averaging 26.3 ft to the pin. I'm only getting up and down 18% of the time. This is just really bad. Basically, If I can't hit a GIR, I can't Par. I need nGIRs to be worth something to me. I need a tool that allows me to tun nGIRs into pars. This problem is really stunting the ability of my much improved full swing to reflect dramatically in my final scores. I'm looking for help or swing thoughts here. I don't need to become a great chipper. I don't need to have all the shots. I just need a way to become consistent. no more chunking the ball 3 feet in front of me. No more blading the ball across the green. consistent solid contact every time. If I can learn to make my contact consistent every time, then I can learn how to get better and better at putting it close to the hole with practice. But, If I can't consistent make solid contact, then it's a guessing game and the practice is worthless. Seriously, I haven't had a complete mis-hit on a full swing sand wedge all year long. Wrong line or wring distance, sure. but, at least, it solid crisp contact every time. If I can do this with a full swing, there should be absolutely no reason I can't do it with a chip. It's silly. anyone have any good thoughts, or links to a good youtube video or whatever?
  3. I hear the TV announcers of the PGA tour refer to controlling the spin. I'm thinking a more lofted club = more spin. And, more club head speed = more spin. So for more spin take a full swing with more loft. For less spin take a shorter swing with less loft. Do I have this right? Is there more to it?
  4. Question: I've recently started using my 60 lob wedge around the green but a problem has emerged. While previously, I (almost) exclusively was using my 52 gap and was able to dial distance with the single club I now find that switching between the two is really creating distance problems. Now, the 52 feels like the ball explodes off the head and I tend to hit it too far. I know it's probably just more practice but is there anything clever that can help as well? For longer shots, I've actually taped distances for a full, 3/4, and half swings on a tag on all my wedges and i've found it helps a bunch. Any tricks for the short shots? Tx.
  5. Help! I need help chipping around the greens. I have been taught the Some some, Some No and No No story, but I still often hit the ground or blade it. What can I do to correct this? Also, I am TERRIBLE out of the sand. I have always been taught to aim for 1 inch behind the ball (this is when chipping from the sand, not long distance) but I often get all sand or all ball. I welcome all mockery, as long as you provide a tip. (that's what she said). Thanks in advance.
