How to Make Pitches Bite

The Problem

If you buy a wedge that's designed to rust, give it time to do just that, so you can realize its spin-producing benefits.

Your pitch shots fly straight, but they land on the green without any spin and run past the hole.

The Solution

Hit pitches that land on your target then grab the green harder than a miner’s handshake.

The Key

Hinge your wrists quickly on your backswing and then bring your club back down to the ball as fast as you can with your hands and make an abrupt finish. The faster you accelerate then stop, the more the ball will run up your clubface and grab in the grooves. That groove-grab produces spin.
