How to Select Your Golf Club for Pitching

When you are out on the golf course, it is so important to have a variety of shots. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by using the same length swing but with different lofted clubs. Why worry about how to select your golf club for pitching? Doing so will give you a number of different distances and trajectories on your shots. That’s how you’ll know you’ll be making the correct club selection for the given shot.

I typically use my wedges and occasionally even a 9 iron. I will use the maximum swing length allowed when using my FLYT Sleeve to create four consistent carry distances. Each shot will go approximately 15-20 yards further than the last. Around 40 yards with my lob wedge, 55 with my sand wedge, 70 with my pitching wedge and roughly 85 yards with my 9 iron. I feel much more comfortable, particularly into the wind from 80-85 yards, taking a smaller swing with my 9 iron and controlling the ball flight than throwing one up higher with my lob wedge.

I think you’ll find that figuring out how to select your golf club for pitching will really improve your game inside 85 yards.
