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 . Some places have a lot of slopes and the ground is quite hard. Little chips can roll a VERY long way.
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.
Drills To Stop Hitting Skulled Pitch Shots All you need to do is find a towel or golf club grip to put under the outside of your back foot. Then, hit your pitch shots like normal.
A poor setup and lack of body turn are the major culprits. Make sure you’re not leaning away from the target at address to try to help the ball up. The more you lean back, the farther behind the ball you hit.
