How many times have you faced a 40-yard pitch shot?

This is a pretty common shot for most of us at Team Titleist, and on paper, it should be an easy shot to execute.

And sure enough, these are the shots that usually determine if you'll steal a birdie, save a par, or mark a square on the scorecard.

Well, we've enlisted Titleist Brand Ambassador (and defending champion of this week's John Deere Classic) Zach Johnson to share some pointers on how you can hit this pitch shot closer to the hole, and lower your scores.

Check out the video above and let us know how you like to control your pitch shots? Do you pull a different Vokey wedge out of the bag? Adjust your swing, move the ball position or is it something else?
