Pitching from firm, tight lies can magnify even the slightest bit of leading edge as the club approaches the golf ball. Hitting a successful pitch from that lie can be difficult for golfers at every skill level. As Scott Hamilton demonstrates in this video, the ticket can be in how position the club shaft at the start of the downswing.

At Athletic Motion Golf, we see so many golfers trying to play this shot from a “hands-in, club-out” position. The problem with that is it virtually eliminates your chance of using enough bounce… and it pretty much guarantees you’ll be coming into the ball with that sharp leading edge leading the parade.

If this shot has been a tough one for you to play consistently, get yourself a small wooden dowel and give what Scott is describing a try. Hopefully you’ll start hitting it closer to the hole!

Let us know how it works for you.

    And if you play Single Length clubs you need not worry about multiple swing planes because the butt end dowel pointer plane will always be the same. Anybody who can’t break 90-100 should be swinging SL clubs, and if you’re not you’re swing and game is futile…. i.e. you’ve hit the wall with your multi-lie angle clubs.

      Yes, we all want a 37.5 inch LW. Golfers are not exactly storming golf stores for SL Clubs.

        Jerry…. I sense you are a scratch golfer or nearly scratch so you don’t need SL clubs because you’ve mastered your variable length clubs.
        Perhaps you should have some empathy for those 90-100+ golfers who are struggling to control their multiple swing planes and have no time or hope to get it all together.
        New golfers are defeated by their traditional clubs before they start the game, and soon there will be no new golfers to subsidize the good golfers like you because the OEMs will go bankrupt.

      ROFL. Futile? Sounds like someone drank some KoolAid. There has been a total of one win in the history of the PGA tour with single length irons…..everyone else is futile…gimme a break.

        I was referring to recreational golfers who can’t break 90-100+ because they can’t master the multiple swing paths with conventional clubs.
        A good golfer like you can play and feel the clubs the pros play and win with, but the vast majority of golfers are unable to play with pro clubs. You are one of the lucky few.
