This is piece I wrote for Today’s Golfer magazine on pitching. It’s by no means exhaustive but if you want the nuts and bolts then here they are.
Upon learning the game it would seem fairly instinctive to lift the ball from underneath but it is this instinct that leads to an array of swing errors. In actual fact the club should still be moving downwards as we make contact with the ball. It is fairly common advice to ‘hit down’ on the ball but the important thing is not to strike down in the ground but to control where the club arc bottoms out in relation to the ball.
