Pitching
Around the Academy:

Step 1

Take a narrow stance with the ball in the centre of your feet.

Your front foot maybe slightly open to allow a freer swing - but take care to adjust the clubface so it is still aimed at the target.

Some players open their stance a bit and compensate by opening the club face in order to get extra loft.

But practice hitting the ball crisply square on at first.

STAR TIP:: To get more spin, play the ball further back in the stance which will set the hands further forward than normal and create a steeper swing
