The situational nature of golf requires us to have a full arsenal of shots, but it’s beneficial to have minimal adjustments required in order to maximize consistency. When playing the high pitch shot, open up the clubface to have the toe facing at 2:30 — if you were visualizing a clock — and slightly open your stance. When hitting the shot, imagine the swing is an elongated putting stroke and maintain that tempothroughout the swing, allowing the club and stance to do the work.
