    Hi Ross, I was watching the pitching videos again and noticed it looks like you have choked up on the wedge… Is that accurate and if so do you recommend it?


    Hi Ed
    Yes! It gives you much better control. It shortens the radius, so you can be aggressive on short shots. Experiment and see the results you get.

    Sorry, what means “choked up on the wedge.”



    Ross Mar 21, 2019
    Some say “choked up” and some say “choked down”… my reference means to grip the club with your hands closer to the club head. This essentially shortens the shaft. As you shorten the club, remember to still “sit down” to the shot… do not bend over to get to the ball. You must stay in balance at setup.
