Chuck Cook is a legendary golf coach who has coached many professional golfers to wins on the PGA Tour. In this lesson, he has put together a great lesson on how to hit a greenside pitch shot off a tight lie. This shot is particularly difficult because it requires you to lose your angle of attack with your clubhead. When you do that you lose bounce and the face of the club can’t get the ball in the air with spin. Chuck Cook shows us how to hit the ball high, off a tight lie, and still pitch the ball onto the green.
Cook is a member of GOLF Hall of Fame Teachers and Golf Digest Top Ten Teachers for decades. As a young man he was blessed to have studied under several Golf Digest Professionals, including Bob Toski, Jim Flick, Peter Kostis, Davis Love Jr., Paul Runyan and Jack Lumpkin. In addition, he has taught an array of workshops for the PGA of America with the likes of David Leadbetter, Dr. Gary Wiren, Ed Oldfield, Bill Strausbaugh, Kent Cayce and many others. As a teacher, Cook has the unique opportunity to employ Dave Pelz, Fred Griffin, Dr. Ralph Mann, Dr. Richard Coop, Al Vermeil (Strength Coach for the Chicago Bulls) and Phil Rodgers.
