Pro Tip of the Week: The Standard Pitch Shot Technique of Tour Pros

By Wayne | Videos: Pro Tip of the Week

What is the standard pitch shot? Watch Phil Mickelson, and Rickie Fowler as examples. I also show Rory McIlroy hit a non-standard pitch shot for contrast.

Do you get many viewers on “Facefook”? I’d have thought that was a different website entirely!

Thanks Wayne,

I’ve really struggled trying to adopt a “use the bounce approach” for my basic pitch. I have no trouble doing that with a partial or full flop; but find the distance control really inconsistent for a standard go to pitch.

How much yardage (by percentage of a full 58* wedge: 85 yards) would you think reasonable to try and get out of the fold and hold type pitch versus a partial wedge shot?
