How To Pitch Like A PGA Tour Pro! 5 Tips for Golf Pitch Shots!


huh it’s a beautiful wet soggy
California rainy day so I figured why don’t we do some some pitching let’s do
it the dreaded 30-yard pitch shot today I’m gonna give you my five keys to
hitting these solid crisp at the flag every single time you’re gonna love it
if you haven’t subscribed to the channel please do that now and hit the bell
notifications so you don’t miss anything and if you’re interested in any of the
gear I have like my math clock whatever links are in the description below let’s
get to it there we go okay step one okay we’re
going to order here one two five obviously go an order step one is this
you have to keep your weight for more on your front foot than your back okay
we’re not transferring our weight back and forth you don’t want to do that when
you keep it’s about 70% on that front foot the whole time you’re swinging just
stay on that front foot that’s step one you’ve got to keep your weight on that
left side you’re gonna be more accurate you’re gonna be just more consistent
ball striking every single time so step one weight stays on your left side the
whole time 70% okay if you watch my channel at all
I preach I don’t preach I might but I talk about this all the time and it’s
step two here we go look at this for pitching for pitching for every shot we
don’t do not rotate your hands open don’t do that don’t open your hands on
your backswing okay we want to keep that face shut if anything if you go back
rotate it opens gonna get you in big trouble when you’re pitching so weight
forward don’t rotate don’t rotate anything it’s right here almost made that I’m going for that that
black bucket on the on the stand out there and so when we rotate that face
open you’re hurting yourself because you’re not gonna get the spin you want
we want to get a lot of bite a lot of check more spin and so the more we
rotate that face open the more side spin and flipping and slapping at the ball we
do so we’ve got to avoid that no rotate those hands up in’ as you take the club
back okay keep it shut right in here boom that’s step two step three very
critical this step very important okay and here it here here you go I don’t
want my arms to go past right here that’s as far as I’m taking my arm
parallel parallel to the ground three o’clock nine o’clock if you’re
from Australia just kidding I like to think that there’s an electrical fence
right it horizontal where I parallel and if I go there I get zapped so I don’t
want to go that far I want to keep my arms maximum this far back every single
pitch shot you do that right here keep those arms every shot you want to go
farther you got a you got a fifty I don’t care what club you if you need to
go farther go have more club but keep every pitch shot the exact same don’t
change weight forward don’t rotate the hands and don’t go past here
this is 7-iron now right right here I’m just right here that’s gonna save you so
much grief don’t go past parallel right there’s where you want to be
you got a shorter shot just add more loft that is step number three let’s
move on okay so you’ve got the first three steps down step four
this applies to every shot in your entire life so just always do this where
am I going I’m so excited because this is gonna get
you shots that you’ve never had before what what I want your thought
to be you always hear people say be aggressive go after it well yes but the
reality behind that is acceleration you have to accelerate through the shot
so if you take too long of a swing your body’s gonna know Oh slow down puppy
you’re going too fast and you will decelerate flip those hands everything
will be wrong so that’s why I keep your swing your pitch is short so your body
knows accelerating also the reason we don’t transfer our weight back and forth
is because you transfer your weight and then you accelerate you’re gonna send
this thing in outer space you’re gonna go away long and we don’t want that
that’s why our weight stays forward that our ball strike but also it keeps us
from over accelerating adding too much power behind the ball so that’s why it
all works together so this one is right here accelerate through the ball I’m
always speeding up as a hit always accelerating through that ball that’s
step four it’s getting exciting isn’t it I know I know if you’re excited just
shout it out just yeah yeah I know do it cuz you’re getting good
that’s step four Step five is gonna blow I don’t know it’s gonna blow your mind
but it’s it’s it’s special here we go okay so Step five here’s what I like to
think of Step five is if you do one to four you’re fine you could stop right
there and have a great rest of your life pitching the ball because all the
fundamentals are there the weights forward you’re not over rotating your
hands your swing is short and you’re accelerating through the ball all of
that you’re good you’re good you don’t have to do this next one this is this is
extra so when you hit your shot your your buddies will just look at you there
but dude you get one of those dude and I’ll do that look like huh how do you do
that I’m never seen that before that’s what this is this is that secret sauce
that extra special something or other that time that you get any like oh and
here’s what it is it’s super subtle let me see what you see it okay you see
it it’s it it’s hard to see here’s what it is as I’m taking it back right when
I’m go right here I like to say I loosen the screw I want to say tighten the
screw but you’re not really so pretend I’m holding a screwdriver in this hand
right and I’m gonna loosen the screw right there cuz righty tighty lefty
loosey so I’m loosening the screw just return
you’re holding screwdriver alright and you’re loosening so I take
it back right here I’m loosening the screw so
I’m turning my wrist this way as if the screw is up here and I’m loosening it
right there as I come down what does that do okay as you can see I mean
you’re not gonna turn it that much but just a little bit allows you to get that
bowed left wrist it will get your hands ahead of the clubface it will deal off
the club a little bit so you get more Drive and spin on the ball and it will
just help you hit a much cleaner crisper shot and help you drive that ball in a
little bit lower with a little more spin so you know everything’s a saint just
whoo loosen the screw and hit and you’ll finish kind of out in here watch I love that shot just let me know if you
could see the difference the first shot I won’t loosen the screw okay here we go
same ball hook same ball same club same everything
regular no loosen the screw right here I mean I made it I totally made it maybe
you don’t shouldn’t loosen the screw well I made it but you started the ball
with nice and high it was good now here comes loosen the screw shop make it hard here we go now I’m gonna
loosen the screw almost made that one do you see the difference in those two
shots when you loosen the screw it drives it lower with more spin the other
ones a much higher shot both are great but that that head-turner
who-whoa is the this little guy right here just a little bit it’s gonna feel
like you’re going like this but you’re just you’re probably moving it just like
like right like like like that just by that much but it feels like you’re going
like this it’s just a little something special that that gets you that that’s a
good shot how’d you do that well what huh is that
you did that that’s you’re gonna get those reactions so just a recap right
weights forward from foot you’re not rotating these that’ll kill you almost
all the time it’ll kill you yeah you just got to get more lucky more often to
hit good shots okay so none of this keep that square okay
arms right to here okay acceleration through the ball and if you want to add
a little flavor to your shot loosen the screw just a little bit right here right
as you make that transition it’s kind of like that’s that’s your transition point
right there and it’s just just a little bit right in there boom and then you’ll
finish a little more up here whereas if you don’t do it you’ll be a little more
there so it’s just a little flavor to your shot
if you want to drive it a little bit lower with a little more spin you don’t need any special extraordinary
abilities to pitch the ball like a PGA Tour professional you just need a couple
keys to help you really get what you’re looking for so hope you like it hope it
helps I’m excited for you because this is one of my favorite shots in golf and
it’s something I go to let’s say on par 5 then I lay up to this 30 40 50 hour
distance you know because it’s really cool to pull these shots off and it’s so
much fun I just lick my chops every time I guess I’m like this also if
I’m in trouble on a par 4 man I punch out to that that 30 40 50 yard number
because I just I feel like how exciting I get to do this shot that I love so
much when I say par a lot more often than not then I don’t so give it a try
let me know if it works for you man I sure hope it does comment below like the
video share to your friends subscribe if you haven’t done so already I love you
guys good luck out there on the links sweat out here in California I mean get
some rain it’s coal state shutdown which is what happens kind of week out here I
know I know but just who we are what do you do anyways peace out
see you next time

  1. Tips 1-4 perfect. Tip 5 no way. It is surely far better to release the club through impact, with neutral hand/shaft position, using the bounce on the club rather than delofting. I note that you placed the ball a little back from the inside of the left heal — not back of center.

  2. hey mr sg… can you please explain the theory behind and how to hit a knock down shot??? thank you!!!

  3. Really like your tips. Some thing that may help. Some times I get a little quick on these shoots. To get better tempo, give the swing more time… Try to think "A C C E L E R A T E" instead of "ACCELERATE". My thought is to not rush it but "accelerate with the force of gravity".

  4. I have been watching your videos at work all weekend ,I have really enjoyed them canโ€™t wait to try ,you new no 1 fan

  5. You mention Australia, you get a subscribe.

    Also, may want to mention left handers Tighten the screw, not loosen. Anyway great vid

  6. I'm a Ranger at a golf course, and I'll go out to an empty hole and throw some balls down at 40 yards and practice this drill. Then, I played this shot with some buddies, and one response was…"nope nope nope, I'm not playing with someone that has that much time on their hands" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. if its a 30 yard pitch, are we pitching to the flag or to the flag. what if bounces at exactly 30 yards and from where you are it exactly 30 yards to the pin. that ball is going to run at least 2meters away from the hole. where do you want to pitch the ball. I'm good at this shot. but the variables, what happens when the ball lands. if theres a bit of check on the ball then it may run out to 1meter. this is where I'm struggling with.

  8. Can't thank you enough. I applied the skills you taught, & I practiced twice, in this video today in the course. My GIR was 78%! Usually I shot 95ish. Today I shot 82! Unreal! Pitching & chipping were always my struggle. Not going past horizontal & accelerating through worked wonders. So much more control. Thanks again brother!

  9. Fab as always thanks. Could you do something on regaining tempo mid round. You know when youโ€™ve tried everything and nothing working. Any simple re sets please?

  10. THANK YOU!!! I have been stunning my golf buddies whose balls always land and roll out and now my ball lands take one or two hops and checks right up and 95% of the time leaving me a makeable par 2 to 5 foot from the hole. No more 450 yards in 2 shots and then 3 or 4 shots from 30 yards which had just about frustrated me into quitting the game. This video locked that right down or would that be loosened that right now ? Well who cares, all I know is golf is fun again! TY SIRL!L
