Hitting a Low-Lofted Chip

3 posts in this topic

Hello, this is my first post on the forums. I am a high school golfer, but since it is the summer, I lack instruction. I was wondering how I could add I lower-lofted, running chip to my arsenal. Right now, I only hit high-arching chips, no matter what the club loft is; 52,56,60. I need this chip for when I am in a situation when I can not hit my normal chip, such as being under a tree. When in these situations, I usually just bump-and-run with a 3 iron or hybrid. I understand that I should probably would use a 52* when hitting a running chip, but I do not know how to go about doing this. Thanks!

It really depends a lot on the lie that you get as well...  My friends all joke because I carry 4 clubs to almost every chip (not including my putter)...   I personally like to use a 7 or 8 iron sometimes and I open the club slightly and almost slice it with a putting type stroke...  you can also play the ball back in your stance, lean the club to your front hand, hold that angle firm and use a putting type stroke...   There are a couple different ways to play it, but really it takes you experimenting with a couple techniques and using what feels the best and produces the best results for you.  Look at your lie and what stroke is going to give you the most consistent contact and spin....   Good luck this season!!
