One of my go-to drills when it relates to pitching – using the bounce of the wedge.
Set up the drill – place a row of golf balls roughly the length of your foot in front of your ball. Pitching from behind the balls helps use the bounce whereas pitching in front of a row of balls helps use the leading edge. Both methods work, but if you’re looking for a more forgiving technique I recommend learning how to use the bounce. Practice making clean contact while avoiding the row of balls. You have to let the club pass your hands as the club skims the ground. That may feel like a scoop, but when the body rotates it won’t be. Another important key is forgetting about the ball. Thinking too much about contacting the ball before the ground promotes the use of the leading edge, not the bounce.
