I want to work on improving my chipping. I'm looking to improve my score by reducing 3-putts. This is happening because I'm typically very far from the pin once on the green.
I have taken lessons, read a bunch of stuff on the web, and read a couple of books. It seems like I've come across 2 main schools of thought. The first is to almost always use the same club, typically a pitching wedge, and practice using that club for different distances. The more you use it, the better you get by improving your estimate as how hard to hit it to get close to the pin.
The second method is to use different clubs, typically a 7,8,9, or PW and use these to carry the ball to the edge of the green, and then let the ball roll toward the pin, with the different clubs causing a different ratio that the ball is in the air vs. roll.
I'm seeking opinions as to which (if either) method is preferable for a high handicapper to use to start getting closer to the pin. Which do you use, and why?
Thanks all, and happy New Year.
