THE PITCH SHOT
The best way to introduce this video is to quote a professional:
“The pitch shot is perhaps the most important shot in golf. Over seventy percent of shots are played from sixty yards or less and most shots from off the green are pitch shots.”
Michael Lamanna, PGA
Generally played with one of the wedges, pitch shots have a steep trajectory and very little roll. Unlike chip shots, which spend minimum time in the air, maximum time on the ground, pitches spend maximum time in the air and minimum time on the ground. This video demonstrates how the pitch shot works in The Golf Club.
