  1. When you do this drill where are you gripping the club? Is it the normal position that you would use for your right hand? Or is it a bit closer to the end?

  2. It depends on the length of shot. Because the pitch is a mini swing generally I will choke down the handle to reduce power. The best thing for you to do is experiment up and down the handle and see how it effects distance. Thanks for your comments and keep in touch.

  3. I'm actually better at pitching with one hand than two :s I always feel I have too much energy with two hands and so don't commit properly which usually leads to thinning it

  4. Same with me. I do pitch better but too scared to try it on the course. I would hate to shank one with everyone watching and have them think I am not trying.

  5. i actually golf one handed. i am right handed hit with my right. left arm usually hold my smoke 🙂 i play the course one handed driving range one handed. i drive between 240-260, 9 iron about 150, 4 hybrid around 200 +roll. my problem is i hit the ball too hard! i am working on trying to get less distance on my short irons.

  6. I'm having trouble making the transition from one hand to two… how does one go about recreating that same rhythmic flow and shallow swing plane. I can consistently hit the most beautiful one-handed, 15/20-yard pitch shots off tight lies that land like a sack of divots, but when the left hand is added to the grip, the result is nothing even remotely similar. Piers, I would love to hear your thoughts… thanks, RYR

  7. Why do you switch when striking the ball. How can people tell what your doing when the camera angles change mid swing???????????

  8. I can hit the ball ok with my right arm only. As soon as I put my left hand on I shank it consistently. Help !!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I’m one of the many people that can pitch and chip right handed 9 out of 10 times exactly where I want to. When I add my left arm, it’s all out the window.. what’s the deal? I’ve looked it up online and it seems this is common.
