The Most Efficient Methods To Help You Cure Your Pitching Faults

Counter your pitching faults effectively

When you think you are nearer to a birdie and all you need is the right pitching shot but fail at it, your pitching is faulty. You need to look into some efficient moves that help you cure the pitching fault. Here are a few ways to counter this problem.

Poor technique

Most often golfers use the wrong sole part of the club. The golf club’s leading edge touches the ground, making it bury inside leading to poor strike and inconsistent contact with the ball. This can affect the pitching technique badly.

Pitching cure

You need to use a pitch shot in such a way that the club strikes the ball in a slow and descending blow without burying into the ground.

For an ideal set up, you need to minimize your body power and that of the club, so you can have better control of the shot. To ensure better control, the stance should be narrow.

The farther away from the ball you are, the more power you will place on the club, so move closer to the ball to reduce the power.

Closer distance to the ball also helps in an upright swing, which makes a downward blow into the ball.

Body weight

Apply nearly 60% of your weight on the front foot during the shot to help form a descending and slow strike that helps in a clean contact with the ball without touching the ground.

Golf wedge

For cleaner strikes, make use of the golf wedge bounce. The modern wedges of today have bounce angle placed on their bottom side. This helps the club to emerge from the ground after it enters the surface.

To ensure the bounce angle comes into contact, you need to make the trailing edge make contact instead of the leading edge. Skim the trailing edge of the club’s sole on the floor when you make your practice shot, to be adept at this move.

This makes a smooth slide on the surface without any friction. The club contacts the ball in a cleaner way whenever you pitch, so your faulty shots are averted.

Longer backswing

Decelerating hit through the golf ball is prevented this way leading to a crisp and solid strike. A longer backswing is also the cause of the decelerating hit. When you have a longer backswing, the power is more, so you try to compensate it with a decelerating downswing. Due to the heavy club head, this results in a thin or fat contact. A shorter backswing and real acceleration helps averting this pitching fault.
