Target and trajectory are the two keys to hitting successful short game shots. Pitching, (much like chipping just hit with higher loft) is used when we want to fly the ball farther in the air instead of hitting a shot that is low to the ground.
My great-uncle and World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Christy O’Connor Sr. told me a great drill that can be used to work on pitching at home. He explained how you can practice pitching using an umbrella. If you don’t have access to a chipping green or just want to work on your short game in your back yard this drill is perfect.
Simply set up the umbrella and try to land high trajectory pitch shots into it.
Don’t worry if they don’t stay in the object is to land the ball in the umbrella.
Also, Always be sure to look at the target.
