Among the main weapons you need in your bullet crafting arsenal are: high shot Which lands softly and does not roll over. While this shot has some risk to it, you can reduce the chance of mistakes with good technique. Here’s how to do it:
1. Use the shot sparingly
High shots around the green are fun and beautiful when executed well, but they require a longer swing relative to a sliceIt’s a little more dangerous. Hit the shot only when you need it.
2. Club selection is important
The club’s choice of high pitches is not always intuitive. You wouldn’t use a wedge, because it doesn’t have enough loft and therefore produces more roll than roll. Use a racket with loft and bounce, ie gap, sand or spiral wedge.
3. Have enough bounce
The rounded bottom of the Gap, Sand and Wedge is designed to help the club glide across the ground instead of digging in and bouncing around. Many great new wedges have high bounce options. for me PingGlide New 60° Wedge It has 14 degrees of bounce, and I really like the way the club interacts with the ground.
4. Set the club afterwards on your own
When you place the clubhead behind the ball, you want to set the shaft in a more neutral position where the handle is not tilted toward the target. Set your club without any inclination and then position yourself so that the club is centered so that the head of the club is in the center of your heel and the end of the club is pointing towards your belly button.
5. Hit the ground
You must be prepared to hit the ground with the head of your club to get the ball in the air. Don’t make an upward movement or “help” the ball up in the air. Simply make your racket hit the ground, and this will help produce a nice high shot.
6. Throw a saboteur
Be willing to “throw” the clubhead downward and allow it to release so that the shaft is straighter up and down rather than bent forward at impact. This pitching-friendly release will help increase loft and bounce on impact.
7. You can use your wrists (but you don’t have to)
You may have heard that you have to use your wrists to hit a high smooth pitch, and while this can certainly help increase spin, it also increases the chance of unnecessary moving parts. If you use a high putter and set it up in a neutral position and release it properly, you can still hit a field shot without using too many hinges.
8. Smaller setup = smaller swing
For shorter pitches, it helps to narrow your stance and hold the handle. This shorter lever will help reduce unwanted speed and distance. A narrower stance also limits your flexibility and helps make your backstroke shorter.
9. Calibrate to where the ball lands
When you practice your pitches, focus more on how long you need your backhand to drop the ball at different distances in the air. It is important to know how far the ball stays in the air because when you hit a high pitch you generally need a rough tolerance or risk. Club selection and backswing length will determine carry distances.
10. Practice building confidence
Pitch putts require practice due to the moving parts in the swing and the longer backswing required from the high club selection. Working on technical and strong communication. Then you can move on to working on targets and controlling distance. When I’m warming up at the range, I make sure to hit a few more pitches before hitting the court. The high course is an essential shot for all golfers. By understanding what rackets you can use, proper setup and movement will result in higher shots and more ups and downs.
