DO IT THIS WAY
How to pitch with your lob wedge
With more loft, your tendency is to come up short, so stay aggressive. But don't confuse aggressive with swinging harder or faster or you'll start catching the ball thin. Instead, keep your arms and hands relaxed and feel like you're turning your chest into the ball on your downswing and then keep turning so that your chest follows the ball on its path to the target. That gives you constant acceleration and, more importantly, makes it almost impossible for your hands to flip past your body and hit the shot offline. You know you're doing it right if you don't have to turn your head to see where the ball ended up.
Accelerate through the ball for spin and control.
