Re: Chipping, wrist or no wrist
I can feel when the bounce hits the ground just before impact, usually gives a nice shot.
Because they enhance control.
One day you'll listen to all that people say...
I understand that you don't like the "standard swing" which makes sense. Lots of different swings out there by pros, only held together by the inches before and inches after impact.
But they allllll use their body on at least some of their short game shots.
As to the comment on putting... just as long game has lots of differences than short game, short game (chipping pitching) has differences with putting. Control in the pitching and chipping shots erik is talking about, I imagine, is more about proper contact (using the bounce, thumping the ground on a bunker shot) than having the face at EXACTLY the right spot to drop a putt. Control on putting and pitching isn't the same thing.
Yes there different things(putting and chipping), but consider a 30 foot putt from the edge of the green.......we putt ......no body turn ,no wrists no body involvement at all really. But then consider the same shot but from the fringe. not 30 feet from the cup but 32 feet. So now it's suddenly important to use the body in some way......to enhance control? yeah right! I mean that's funny!
Hell, all I'm saying is there are different ways to play that shot. I like to play the shot in a different way, big deal. I just find it funny the way you guys seem to think there's one way to do things .....the right way and the wrong way.
I just have one question for you, "Crown or VB?".
