Pitching Close To The Green

Luke shows how his preferred shot when close to the green and when there is not too much green to work with. He goes with the 60 degree wedge (although I've heard that is a bit too much loft unless you practice loads). We are warned against a common mistake of having the ball too far back and our hands pushed too far forward - exposes the leading edge apparently and that's not good because we're looking to use the bounce. He finishes with a good mental tip about trying to make these shots since having a very narrow focus (i.e. the hole) helps get the ball closer, if not into, the cup.
