Pitching the Perfect Golf Shot

Aug 17, 2007
You may know how to pitch a baseball, but what about pitching a golf ball? In all honesty, these are two entirely different pitches that we are talking about. Although just about everyone knows what pitching a baseball is, the same does not hold true about pitching a golf ball.

Golf continues to become increasingly popular among people of all ages, countries, and sexes, 'pitching a golf ball' is no doubt soon to become a popular term. This is why it is in your best interest to learn about it - especially if you already have an interest in the game of golf.

In golf, the term 'pitching' means your short game, without putting. Pitching itself is a huge part of a golf game. If you are able to pitch a golf ball correctly, you will most likely be able to play your hole very well.

How do you pitch the golf ball correctly?
Well, you must remember one key point. And that point is that after you hit it, the ball will bounce on the green. Afterwards, it will continue to roll. Do not forget this point when planning your pitch. You must take this ball movement into consideration, or you will end up placing the ball far past the hole that you were originally aiming at.

When attempting to successfully pitch the golf ball, you should pick a club that will help you achieve your goal in the best way. You should then try to figure out the projection of the ball after you hit it. Ask yourself if it is better to hit it in an arc or in a straight line. Keep your eye firmly on the spot on the green where you wish for it to land, and estimate the strength you need to use to get the ball to that point.

What stages does pitch have?
Pitch has two different stages. The first pitch stage is the stage in which the golf ball is in the air. The second pitch stage is the stage in which the ball is in the putt phase. The golf ball is in the 'in-the-air' phase until it hits the ground, and then enters the 'putt phrase'. When hitting the golf ball, you must estimate where it will land based on its potential actions once it hits the ground.

What types of pitch can you use on the ball?
Which pitch you use on the ball will determine the way in which the ball bounces and rolls. For example, if you use a flop shot, the ball will bounce several times. These bounces will be close together, and the ball will probably not roll very much because of the high arc that it was hit with. If you look at another ball, however, that was hit with an 8 Iron from thirty yards out, the ball will most likely bounce - and the speed of these bounces will probably be far apart. This ball will roll much further than the first one we discussed.

No matter what type of pitch you put on your ball, remember to pay close attention to your game and don't forget to have a good time. That's what golf is all about!
