Zach Johnson: Don't Get Wristy On Pitch Shots

Zach Johnson is among those on tour pioneering the "straight-arm pitch" technique, which he used at the 2013 Northwestern Mutual World Challenge when he holed his wedge shot for par on the final hole. The stunning shot got him into a playoff with Tiger Woods, who he would defeat. Keeping his arms straight essentially limits Johnson's margin of error because it minimizes the need to time the shot with his arms and wrists.
