Playing a great game of golf is more possible when you can pitch efficiently. Certain tips taken into account when pitching during a game of golf can help. When there are no obstacles around and all you see is green, make sure to use your pitching wedge. A gap wedge can be beneficial if you need to carry a sprinkler head or something similar. When the obstacles get larger or if the hole is closer to you than normal, grab your lob or sand wedge.

Once you have the wedge you want, strike the ball with the appropriate loft, ranging from 46 to 48 degrees for a pitching wedge to 58 to 60 degrees for a lob wedge. Try going for the ball forward and center while in your stance when you pitch. Ensure that your clubface is pointing a bit to the right of the target, but make sure to keep your shoulders, hips, and feet aligned the entire time.
