Swing Analysis: Wedge Play with Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Brooks Koepka

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

This video should help dispel some faulty ideas about pitching, specifically about using the bounce versus forward leaning the club into impact. If you listen to the TV announcers there seems to be an inclination to suggest that all pitch shots “use the bounce”, but I think you will see here that that is not the case. Before we get to that aspect let’s just be sure to note that all these players make full use of their pivot in order to properly sequence the swing and to get the body to lead the hands and arms into the shot.

Wayne great piece. What club do you think Spieth and Reed were using for those forward leaning pitch shots? Gap, 52, 54 or their 58, 60?

Enjoyed this Wayne. So many shots taken during rounds with short game. This helps remove confusion. David

In looking at Spieth’s swing, am I mistaken or are there similarities with Westwood’s swing
