Learn to Execute A Short Pitch Shot That Rolls to the Target

Hi, Dave Cahill here with Cahill Golf. I am at Loggers Trail Golf Course in Stillwater, MN. Today I will show you how to hit a short pitch shot that rolls to the target. Use a lofted wedge for this shot. I’ve chosen my 58-degree wedge. Here is the step by step process. Stand behind the ball. Find your target. Step up to the ball and face the club squarely to the target. The golf ball should be positioned toward the middle of the stance. Adjust the loft of the club, delofting it just a little bit so that the ball will release quickly and roll to the hole. Deloft the club by moving the hands forward toward the target. Don’t close the face, just deloft the club a little bit. Lastly move the left shoulder and hip (target side shoulder and hip) over the left side. During the stroke keep the weight over on the left side. Use the shoulders and hip to rotate turning back and then through the ball. It is a little motion. Keep the hands quiet.

1. Square the club to the target.
2. Positioned the golf ball in the middle of the stance.
3. Deloft the club just a little bit by moving the hands forward.
4. Move the left shoulder and hip over the left side.
5. Focus on the target.
6. Keep the hands quiet, and the weight over the left side while using a short shoulder and hip turn to stroke the ball.

The ball will quickly release and run to the hole.
