In this lesson I’d like to cover some tips for chipping the golf ball out of a heavy lie. I actually cover 2 types of heavy lie in the video below because the way they are played is quite different. When you find your ball in long grass around the fringes of the green, take a good look at how the ball is sitting. Get a feel for the length of the grass and how much is going to be underneath the ball.
So in part 1 we looked at proper set up and how that will improve your pitching technique on the golf course. We also covered some set up adjustments to help you gain better control over your pitch shot distances (which is what pitching is really all about)… In this lesson, we’ll take a closer look at distance control.
In part 1 of this golf chipping series, we’ll look at how to set up for chip shots. Because chipping is all about feel, we want to replace any elements of our set up that are designed to generate power and replace them with elements that generate more control… Adjusting your stance, grip and bodyweight at set up will help you achieve this, as well as some simple swing thoughts as you run through your practice chip shots.
