Pocket-to-Pocket Pitch Shots

It's no secret that I believe the L-to-L drill is one of the best ways you can improve your game. (Here's a link to the most recent post I did about that drill.)

Well, instructor Krista Dunton published a multi-page article over at that shows some ways this drill can help your short game. She uses what she calls 'pocket-to-pocket pitch shots' to play standard, high and low ptich shots. I thought you all might be interested in it.

I'm not going to try and summarize the article because it's four pages long and has detailed photo sequences to illustrate it, so you really should go over and read it for yourself. But basically it takes the L-to-L swing and creates several different pitch shots with it, just by changing the ball position and the club you use.

Definitely worth a look if you'd like a simple way to expand your short game repertoire.
