Golf Tip of the Fortnight
Short Game Tip
As a general rule, keep the ball as low as possible and get it rolling as soon as possible when you chip -- land land it on the green whenever possible, too.
Don't loft the ball up into the
air if you don't have to. Why not? Because the higher you throw the ball in the air the more the amount of spin on the ball can vary, and the steeper the ball comes down into the green the less reliable the bounce will be -- not to mention that the
higher you want the ball's trajectory to be the better the lie you will need to give you decent odds of success.
The bottom line here is predictability. The behavior of the ball on a chip shot from any relatively short length grass
is more consistent and predictable the lower the trajectory is and the less spin the ball has on it.
I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
