The Feel Shots

I get asked all of the time. How do you hit those 50, 60, or 70 yard pitch shots? Well, my answer to those students is that they’re feel shots. But, don’t get confused on that because feel can be taught, especially with those types of feel shots. It’s about doing your math. For example if you have a 75 yard shot. Grab your 100 yard club and do your fractions and percentages. Put 75 (your distance) in the numerator and 100 (your full swing distance) in the denominator to create the fraction. Then, find the common denominator and you will narrow that down to 3/4 or 75%. That’s how much of a backswing you should take to hit that shot and likewise accordingly with those types of in between yardages and feel shots.
