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 has been blessed to have studied under the finest teaching professionals in the game and am eager to pass along the information to the rest of the golfing community. He has been fortunate to have trained 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.

“My philosophy about teaching golf is pretty simple. I don’t think there is a universal best way to swing club. Rather, everyone has his or hier own “unique” way of swinging that club.
believe that if most instructors were honest, they would admit to having some strong preferences as to what they think are “best” swing styles. I am certainly one of those instructors. However, after teaching golf for over 25 years, I realize that not everyone has the time, talent or desire to change their fundamentals.”
