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.
The difference between a chip and a pitch is that the pitch shot flies farther than it rolls, and the chip shot rolls farther than it flies. A chip can travel a longer distance than a pitch . You should ask, “What’s a short game shot ?” The short game starts at half the average carry distance of your highest lofted club.
The ball should be positioned somewhere between the center of your stance to the inside of your back foot. The narrow stance will make the ball appear it is farther back in your stance . This should place your hands slightly to the left (in front) of the ball to encourage a downward strike.
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.
Whether you ‘re facing a shot from the dry bank of a lake or trying to hit it back into play from the edge of the water, you can ground your club just like you would in the middle of the fairway. Removing loose impediments in a bunker or your ball.
