Golf Tip #12: More on Chipping

If your ball is resting against the fringe of the green, you may find it difficult to use your putter. In this case, use your metal fairway wood or wood-iron for this shot.

Adopt the chipping position i.e. open stance, weight left and grip down the shaft. Stand very close to the ball so that the heel of the club is elevated and the toe of the club is behind the ball.

Execute the shot, making sure that your wrists are firm through impact.

You’ll find that the wood or wood-iron separates the grass and the club doesn’t become caught up in the grass.

While it might seem strange at first, golfers become used to it very quickly.
It’s another handy shot to have in your bag!
