HERES A GREAT TIP FROM DAVE PELZ, THE US SHORTGAME GURU…
He once played with Jack Nicklaus and was struck by how long he held his follow through on his putts and his short pitches.
He then noticed that Tiger and Phil do the same thing and there’s good reason.
You can learn a lot from watching your putts roll all the way out as well as your chips and ptiches, good or bad you will get great feedback.
HOLD your finish
WATCH the result
FEEL the length of the swing you used.
Give it a try.
Another tip for judging distance when pitching is:
Imagine you are tossing the ball towards the hole with an underarm throwing motion.
This can help to give you an idea of what length swing you will need.
Always pick a place on the green you want to land the ball when pitching, this will help you allow for both the carry and the roll.
Then just try and land the ball on your spot.
Your spot should be about half way between you and the hole as a general rule for pitching using your pitching wedge on fairly short 30 – 40m pitches.
