Justin Rose on Short-Sided Pitch Shots

Today, a link to a short Golf Digest article by Justin Rose called Pitching to a Short-Sided Pin. It's a very short article but I thought the image Justin mentions is worth your time.

Simply put, Justin saw his teacher Sean Foley pitching to a pin from the short side and noticed a tattoo on the inside of his right forearm. (That would be his trailing forearm, so you lefties would see it on his left forearm.) The tattoo was pointing skyward after he hit the ball, which meant that his forearm didn't roll over at impact.

That tattoo image is a good one to help you if you have trouble with this shot. Make a mark or stick something on the inside of your trailing forearm near your wrist, then practice making pitch shots without letting the mark turn to the side of your target line at impact.

A simple fix for a simple problem. Those are the best kind!
