Pitching Distance Control

Hey, let’s spend a couple minutes on learning a golf instruction swing tip on how to control the different distances that you want your pitch shots to travel.

Now, when you chip you have one golf swing, so your control is from the different golf clubs that you use. If you want to hit a short chip, use a 9 iron. If you want to hit a long chip, you’ll need to use a 5 iron.

But when you pitch, you change your golf swing, not just the club you use. It’s pretty simple but it’s not easy to do. You have to practice it.

The first golf instruction swing tip is if you want a small pitch, your golf club goes parallel to the ground in the backswing. That’s the length that it goes. So, when it’s right at parallel, I’m pretty sure you can tell it’s not up in the air and it’s not just that far back. But it’s parallel.

If you want to pitch it a little bit further, take it back where the shaft is sticking in the ground. The butt of the club is ticking straight down, and this will go a little bit further.

And lastly is when you take a full golf swing but just with the arms, not with the body. That’s your longest pitch shot.

See, I have three wedges. So, I have a 60-degree, my sand wedge, and a pitching wedge. Each wedge has 3 different shots so I have 9 shots total.

If you own two wedges and three different length backswings, that’s six golf shots you have in your bag.

Good luck with those golf instruction swing tips and hang in there.
