Butch Harmon on Pitching from a Buried Lie (Video)

Hey, a new Butch Harmon video! In this Golf Digest video, Butch shows the basics for hitting a high soft pitch shot when your ball is buried in the rough.

It's just five simple steps:
  • Take your most lofted wedge
  • Set up with the ball in the middle of your stance
  • Open the clubface... VERY open
  • Take the club up sharply (notice how much wrist cock he creates for a short shot)
  • No followthrough
I think the most unexpected part is the "no followthrough" finish. But I'm guessing that's what makes the ball go up so sharply, since any effort to get all the way through the grass would probably make you hit the shot thin.

This looks like a good shot to experiment with. That "no followthrough" finish from the rough might be useful with some other shots from the rough as well.
