Earlier this year I played with a gal in a tournament who was hitting these very low screaming hot chip shots that almost appeared like they were skulled and going way over the green - but ended up skipping twice and stopping like glue next to the hole. She did this from 5-20 yards off the green. She was also about 60 years old - so not some young thing with extreme club head velocity.
I've hit tens of thousands of shots and never once had one do that and I'm a low handicap player (3) - and unlike many gals I usually hit down on the ball and trap it. Sure, sometimes I'll get a little spin on wedges, but never this extreme.
It's always made me wonder if she was using illegal grooves or something. I'm sure it's a combination of equipment and technique, but this stuff has always eluded me no matter how many shots I hit and no matter what club I try. What up with this? I'd love to be able to add this shot to my bag! :-)
