Using all your clubs chipping


       I have seen enough good golfers chip with a wedge when a 7 or 6 iron would be a better choice. When around the green the easiest way to shave valuable strokes off your score is to use different clubs. You will see more accuracy to your intended target and finish closer to the hole which will save putting strokes.  Keep this in mind, the less loft on the club, the more roll you will get and less height.  The information below will describe the changes in the basic chipping fundamentals when using different clubs.     


1) Wedges and Short Irons


Feet open about 45 degrees

Weight on the front foot

Hands over front knee

Ball position is even with back toe.



2) Mid Irons


When using 8, 7, 6, 5 irons the fundamentals change slightly:

Stance slightly open

Weight slightly over front foot

Hands forward of the ball

Ball position is between back toe and centre of stance



3) Long irons, Hybrids and woods


Using 3, 4 irons, hybrid or 3 wood, follow this set up:

Stance square to target

Weight even over both feet

Hands a little forward of ball

Ball in the centre of stance

Choke down on club and use a putting stroke
