Most players don't spend enough time pitching the ball. Different from the chip, the pitch spends 80 percent of its time in the air. For instance you would pitch the ball over a bunker to a tight pin. The ball position should be played forward in your stance. The swing starts off by rocking your arms back in a one piece take away. Once your arms reach the 9 o?clock position you then cock your wrists making a 90 degree angle with your lead arm and shaft of the club. Swing your arms down first while holding that angle between your arm and club. Hands should be slightly forward of the ball at impact. The ball should jump high and land soft on the green.
