Turn over your pitch shots

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Many golfers think they have to hold the face sky­ward on shorter wedge shots to hit it high and soft. This leads to dis­tance­con­trol is­sues, be­cause the club isn’t mak­ing solid con­tact. In­stead, swing so your hands ro­tate the club­face down and to the left as it passes through the im­pact zone. This is not a flip in which the right hand scoops un­der the left. The right should ro­tate on top of the left, and the shaft should be in line with the tar­get with the toe point­ing up af­ter im­pact (above). The shot will feel solid, yet the ball will still fly high and stop quickly – with added back­spin.
