  1. Hi Paul 2 questions , 1 on these short chips if you want a little higher shot do you open the club face some and and open your stance or just move ball forward some. 2nd ques on tight lies what is more consistent, this way or using your chipping hands forward technique

  2. What club are u using and is the face squared or open? What if it is a 60 yard pitch shot. Do u use the same club, but take it back futher?

  3. Is the pitch shot more handsy than the full swing?

    • Michael,

      No, your hands are always powerless in the downswing. Just let the rotational speed of your body bring your hands down.

  4. BEN HOGAN would say you should keep your approching pitch shoots low ,for more control and pr

  5. Paul, I keep getting problem topping this shot. Where may it come from? I don’t think I am raising the head too early…

  6. Yes but what I can’t figure out is why am I topping ONLY the pitch shot. I am pretty ok with the normal swing, the chipping with your technique has become a strong point of my game but I have a block on pitching. Can you help me?

      Fabien,

      You are topping pitch shots because you are guessing on how to hit the shot. You need to follow my pitching tip. For pitching you are not hitting just like in the full swing. Search the Red Nav Bar: SWING TIPS > PITCHING. This is all explained as well in my Swing Machine Golf short game series.

  7. Hi Paul,
    Well, i’m off my crutches and out of my boot after the Achilles surgery. So i’m headed to the range today to start practicing pitching, chipping, and putting. It will be several more weeks before i can start taking full swings. When you pitch or chip are we always looking for 3 or 4 knuckles on the left hand, or is that just for thick rough and sand?
    thanks,
    ter

    • Terry,

      You are only seeing 3-4 knuckles when chipping or doing a knock down shot. Pitching is your normal grip.

  8. Great lessons. I love your website and having the short little videos that concentrate on the specific shots.
