How To Pick The Best Club For Chipping
How many times have thought, “What club should I use for this chip shot?”
I’ll bet MANY!
I can’t tell you how many people tell me they had a 40 yard “chip” but didn’t know how, or what club to hit. First, 40 yards is NOT a chip…it is a pitch…2 totally different shots! We define a chip as being within 3 feet of the green, a stroke that uses NO wrist cocking, and a motion about 2 feet in either direction. This IS a basic chip shot.
We have some ratios for you to use but be aware these are for a basic chip shot and NOT for advanced technique.
These ratios are for level lies, be sure to add or subtract for uphill/downhill lies.
