Jeff Ritter: Pitch Perfect

Get it close with confidence

Pitch Perfect

4 Steps to Knock ‘em Dead

Everybody understands the agonizing frustration of being 50 yards from the green and making a mess of the hole. It’s torture. It’s also one of key areas that if you get it right will send your scores tumbling down. So I’m going to show you a few simple tips to take to the practise range that will help get you pitch perfect and fill you with confidence on the course.

Step One

A lot of the time when I see this it’s because player’s bodies and legs our totally out of sync. As you can see from this image. Players are often thinking about lagging the club on short shots for extra spin, but misapplication can cause your timing to be out and get the club digging into the turf. That’s going to lead to inconsistency.
