The sand wedge has the most bounce and loft of any club in your bag. So to hit the soft high pitch shots, utilize this loft by keeping the ball in the center of your stance, and keep your hands and the handle of the club pointed at your belly button. When you swing allow the back of the club to hit behind the ball, hear a thump sound. Pretend there is a coin behind the ball and hit the coin and then the ball. The ball will pop up high and soft.
