The golfer may attempt to scoop the ball with a handsy motion, or take his eye off the ball too soon, or decelerate his swing approaching the ball. The results can be thin or topped chips, hitting behind the ball (fat), poor contact which leaves the ball short, or even shanking.
The second golf tip today is called the rule of 12 . It goes as follows, and we will keep it simple by using a distance of 12 feet. Each foot would be “one part”. You want the club you use to land that many “parts” away from you, while using a putting style stroke to your swing.
If you have to CHIP , the order of club choice will be 7-iron first, pitching wedge second and sand wedge last. The sand wedge will be used in heavy-grass lies because of the heavy weight of the club head. If you can’t putt it or chip -and-run the ball, your last and final choice will be a pitch shot.
