  1. Guys/girls if your looking for tips on how to chip and pitch well go
    straight to Brad Faxon’s 7 part video lessons(youtube), he explains the
    methods well and you will improve, after watching that go to Paul Azingers
    golf tips on pitching!, YOUR SHORT GAME WILL IMPROVE. Sorry but what Mark
    is teaching here is old school methods, there are better ways to pitch more
    consistently as you will see, trust me you’ll improve, now go check out the
    lessons and good luck.

  2. This is one way to hit a pitch shot, but certainly not the best if you’re
    looking to get any spin. If you’re not careful, this method actually leads
    you into hitting fat pitches too. To correct it, you’ll have a tendency to
    put the ball further and further back in your stance, only to lose more
    spin, which defeats your control of this shot.

  3. You’re better off keeping the ball either at center or slightly ahead of
    center. Your backswing should have a slight amount of wrist cock that is
    held and you come through the ball with very little hand movement. Turn
    fairly aggressively with your hips and you should face the target and
    direct your hands at the target in the finish.

  4. Hi, I am one of the small percentage of players using the “cack-handed”
    grip ( left below right) does any of your advice apply to me ? or do I need
    “Divine intervention”.

  5. Great thanks. My game really improves when I can, at length, watch a pro
    repeatedly performing the shot I’m trying to improve. Can you recommend
    videos that do this?

  6. Great video Mark and as always very very helpful. I’ve been taking lessons
    that have had me flipping it to use the bounce so this has got me back to
    basics. One question I’d love you to consider for a future video is how
    many wedges and which lofts/bounces to put in the bag. I’ve got a 46 degree
    PW and 3 more wedges and end up confused over which one to use. If you
    could touch upon this in a future video that would be great. Thanks again
    for all the videos!

  7. Mark, big big fan of your videos – they take up a lot of my ‘favourites’ on
    youtube! Thanks a lot your certainly helping me out and no doubt many other
    other golfers out there.

  8. This golf video contradicts every thing that you say: How to Pitch the Ball
    by PeakPreformanceGolf. I am so confused… I think that i should listen to
    you, but am still confused on how to hit a pitch shot

  9. Great video as always Mark. Excellent channel, I’ve learned so much from
    your channel so thank you very much! Just an idea…Could you do a video
    talking about certain key points and stages in the swing, common errors you
    see etc. a lot of errors occur in the set up so you could start from there?
    I think we all get a bit lazy at times with set up and forgetful of key
    swing points! Kindest regards to you, Craig.

  10. Yeah, I think the shaft position left of the body and the backward ball
    position are two quick remedies for people who don’t hit down on the ball.
    If you make a crisp contact at the sweet spot you don’t have to use those
    “crutches”. I even play the ball a bit forward to make it stop quicker.
    I’ve seen pros take really nice divots even on 20 yard pitches that’s how
    much down they strike it.

  11. Mark, I seem to have a problem when I’m pitching, I put the ball back, but
    when I do, I seem to top it every time, could you tell me why I do this

  12. Tried this at the weekend and lost 6 shots off my normal game, How I
    nomally 8 iron bump and run as when I tried to pitch in the past I placed
    the ball in the middle of my stance and thined it, destroying confidence in
    using the club. Thanks for the tips Mark, have you ever thought of creating
    a dedicated site?

  13. Very useful tips there. I’ve been bending my elbow instead of turning my
    body for the backswing. That could well be what I’ve been getting wrong.
    Can’t wait to try it out. Many thanks!
