    Re: Veenker Golf Tips: Pitching

    Hey CW, I haven't watched the video yet (will do so when not at work), but my advice...try to put yourself in position for a full shot whenever you can, and avoid pitching/chipping.

    If you can groove your wedge from, say, 110 yards, leave yourself that shot instead of just trying to get closer to the hole. Then...go after those GIRs, aiming for the middle of the green.

    I'm an 8 HC, and would be closer to a 2 if I took course management into consideration more often.

    Pitching is an art form, and lessons will help IF you can devote a lot of your time to the game. If you can't (like me...two youngsters at home), IMO it's best to avoid this shot as much as can be helped.
