Here’s the thing…
Because the major muscle groups involved in pitching are in your shoulders and arms, it is vitally important for you to ensure that they work as a unit and that the arms don’t disconnect from the body.
A wonderfully effective yet simple drill to help you achieve this is to hit 50m pitch shots with a towel under your arms, as illustrated below.
Not only will this ensure that your arms & shoulders work together as a team, but you will feel that your arms and shoulders stay connected throughout the pitch.
Try to experience the feeling that the bigger muscles in your shoulders are doing the work whilst your arms just stay ed to follow the move your shoulders are making.
The perfect area to practice this drill is at the World of Pitching at the World of Golf.
Make a point of spending some time there during your next practice session and the more solid ball striking you will enjoy on your pitch shots will translate into better scoring where it counts – from inside 100m from the green!
