To improve your feel when pitching, it’s a good idea to practice hitting balls from varying distances. It’s fine to play from one spot and groove a swing, but this doesn’t help you feel the shot.
Start from a point roughly 10 yards from the green. Work your way back to about 80 yards by dropping and playing a few balls from points about 10 yards apart. From each spot you are going to have to change the strength of your stroke and possibly the loft coming into the green.
This practice develops a sense of distance control and touch. It’s a vital asset when you are out on the course, since you have only one chance to play the shot!
