Video: Top Short Game Tips for Pitching and Chipping Out of the Rough with John Novosel, Jr
Hey guys, John Novosel Jr. here. I've got a short game tip for pitching and chipping out of the rough; part of its equipment, part of its technique. Let's start with that technique.
You got to read this lie. If the lie is really good, if this thing is sitting up pretty nice, I can be very shallow with this thing. Don't have to worry about hitting down or do anything crazy with my wrist. I can get this thing to go straight up in the air, it's gonna pop up. That's a beautiful shot, 57° wedge.
If the lie is sitting down, I'm going to have to work on getting a little steeper to get in there — and one thing that really helps me when I do that is this new Pyramid P4 Prism Wedge. This thing is awesome. I just hit some bunker shots and I was amazed how it cuts through the sand, it gets through the rough equally as well. It's got this super cool sole, it looks like the old Ginty fairway woods, so it really cuts through that sand, but it also keeps the club square as you go through there.
So this thing is really sitting down, now I'm going to open that face. I gotta lift up a little bit and sort of work that way. If I go shallow, it's gonna be really tough to get down there.
Let’s see how this wedge does. Oh my gosh, it bounces right off of there with this thing. It is amazing, I really am in love with this Pyramid P4 Prism Wedge; bunker play, rough, those types of shots.
So remember: if you got a good lie, you can be very shallow. If that lie is sitting down, you gotta chop and get after it.
Try this wedge, I guarantee it'll help you around the green for better short game shots and lower scores.

TESTIMONIAL FROM JOHN
"When I first used the P4 57 wedge in the bunker, I was shocked at how it cut through the sand….like a hot knife through butter. It simplified bunker play because I could just take a ’normal’ swing and let the club do the work. As I used it in other situations, I realized the technology built into these wedges just flat out makes short game shots easier. If you’re looking for new wedges and looking to cut strokes around the green, look no further than the P4!"
