  1. I’m a senior, 9 handicap lefty and have improved the consistency of my game by using your teachings.
    This is the weakest area of my game, the medium distance pitch. I’ve tried all sorts of different methods from running it up with an eight iron to flopping with my lob wedge and can not get consistent.
    I will practice this and hope to get the same improvements as you have given the rest of my game. Maybe I can shave another couple of strokes from my handicap.
    Keep up the excellent work!!!

  2. Paul ,apart from changing clubs ,Pw,Gw,Sw,and turning slow,médium Speed,fast ,there’s a Third way to régulate the distance OF the carry ,which is by changing the position OF the hands on the handle :end OF grip ,middle OF the grip ,close to the steel .
    The advantage I see is you don’t have to fiddle with YOUR rotational Speed .
    In REAL Life ( and golf ) you Contrôl distance by exercizing the shot quite a lot ,in order to get the feel OF it .
    To stop the ball ,or have it roll ,you ” pinch’it ” more or less at impact
    You should practice this shot ( and the short pitch you showed too) hours ,because you Will hole or not the put dépending the distance the ball stops from the pin !

    • Raymond,

      I don’t like changing hand position but if you feel you have to do it then go ahead. Change your hands and you will most likely change your grip. Why change your swing if you don’t have to?

    Hey Paul-

    I’m a new member and your instruction has helped me greatly. I’ve been in the
    backyard working on short and medium chips. Every now and then, I blade one by the dogs. I think I’m dipping during the hinge. Is that likely and do you have any thoughts about ‘staying tall’? I feel as if I’m starting tall. Best wishes!

      Glad you have you on board. That’s great to hear you are improving.

      You should be staying tall and allowing the arms to stretch out as you hit the ball. Maybe you are trying to help it a little. If you try to help it you will look up to see if you did what you are trying to do. Make sure the body is moving the arms.
