Golfers often master hitting a high pitch shot, but have trouble doing the same with a low pitch. There are many theories out there on how to hit it low, but my preferred method is as follows.
Position the ball in line with the pectoral muscle on your lead side with you weight slightly on the lead side and spine more vertical at address. Hinge the club earlier on the backswing and then hold the club under the handle through impact to de-loft the clubface and keep the ball low. Practise this with all your wedges so you can choose the best club to use when you’re on the course.
