Lots of Space, No Green

Posted July 10, 2015 in distance tips

Short sided shots leave you with a lot of space between yourself and the pin, and grant you very little green to work with. These chip shots take practice on the chipping range.

Practice hitting flop shots or a variety of chip shots. You may want to try hitting the ball into the front of the green and letting it run out a little, or bumping it into the hill to bounce it up to the green while letting it take away some of the speed. Work on various, creative shots when practicing to build confidence and expand your options.  The more you work on these different short game shots, the easier it will be to make more up-and-downs.
