For those of you that use a different grip for putting than you use for full shots, which grip do you use for those little chips from just off the green, the regular grip, your putting grip, or something else?

When I'm chipping and pitching, I use the same grip I use for full shots.......an interlocking grip.

.........but I may use a putting style stroke depending on the shot.  IE......if it's a fairway lie and I intend to hit a chip and run......the stroke is very similar to a putting stroke, but I don't use a putting grip.........a putting grip will work, but I don't use it.

I don't even change my grip for putting.  I'm in the simpler is better camp. :smartass:

I am sorry I misread the question... I chip with my normal interlocking grip, I do change my grip pressure... Thumbs are still extended down the shaft...

I'm going to try and start chipping and pitching with the reverse overlap! It feels so comfortable and I have so much more control, or feel like it anyway.. I'll report back on results.

To me a chipping stroke is pretty much the same as a putting stroke. Both are an "arms only" type stroke for me. With that, I use the same grip on both strokes. Heck, I even use the same grip, and stroke on longer chip shots that some folks might call a short pitch shot. The loft I might use is determined by the shot at hand. The only change I do make when chipping is that I raise the heel of club up of the ground a little to avoid it hitting the ground. Yes this puts the toe down a little, which again I don't let touch the ground prior to striking the ball. Actually when raising the heel up, the pitching club will sit some what level, just like the putter does. Only when I have a distance, shot, and/or ball lie that requires me to break my wrists in the back swing, do I change my  to the Vardon grip.  Just a few thing less to worry about.  You can google "Paul Runyon Chipping" for a better idea.

Chipping is all based off of feel, and I prefer not to think of it as a putting stroke... When I chip or work with someone on chipping a teach them to let the bounce of the club to do its job, and to keep there left arm traveling towards there target...

I mix it up on chips depending on the shot. If I'm only a pace or two of the green I'll use a reverse overlap grip but use an interlocking grip just as often on chips. I find I play my chips equally well with either grip so I don't worry about it much

I been using interlocking with a LW for most of my short game shots around the green.

For those " little shots" just off the green, which I define as within 15 paces of the hole, I generally will go to my putting grip which is reverse overlap ,

If the lie is in deep rough around the green within 15 paces to the the hole, I will ten finger grip and still use a putting stroke but hit it off the toe.

In the middle of the summer seems like the grass grows lush around the greens now and need to learn to play those tricky shots with rought around the greens.

    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
    • I've been in a scenario similar before, except I was the player who went over the time and it was an assistant coach who found my first ball as I was addressing my provisional.  Yeah, it really sucks to find the first ball after it's already been declared lost. Knowing that you could have avoided the two strokes if you'd just looked "right over there" instead, but the ball was lost and now at least you aren't out the $4 of a nice ball (assuming you pay for balls, I know many high school/college golfers don't during school tournaments). There was no discussion or arguments on the course, I just told him to toss me the ball and continued to play my provisional, but after the round he pulled me aside to tell me I should have just played the original ball since it was found before I hit the provisional. In all honesty I probably would've scored worse from the position of the original ball (deep in a bush requiring a drop that still would leave me in a bad position), and the ball was already lost. A lost ball stays lost, and if you find it after it's no different than coming out of the woods with an extra couple balls left by earlier golfers. I've also had the coach/caddy of another player in summer tournaments try to twist the rules against me as some kind of "gotcha!" at the scoring tent (where he wasn't even supposed to be allowed) over an event that happened very early in the round. I had pointed out to his player that you can't play from inside of an ESA like you can with other lateral hazards, and apparently that upset him when the player agreed with me rather than him so he claimed I looked too long somewhere on the front 9 for my ball. I hadn't looked for that long, I found it before the other players even started playing their golf balls, but he got himself worked up enough that I just withdrew and left without signing my scorecard or dealing with any of that hassle. This was a guy who made a big deal on the first tee (and multiple other times throughout the round) about being a PGA Professional and that we should all listen to his advice (against the rules) because he was a pro. Those incidents, among others I've encountered along the way, have led me to believe that the people who want to bend the rules are most often the people not actually playing in the event itself, but those who are "indirectly participating" as a caddy/coach/etc. There are no consequences for them directly, if caught the blame lands on the player, but if their players do well they can take the credit. They also usually know enough about the rules to be dangerous, either from intentional or unintentional misinterpretation.
    • After having a golf simulator for 2 months my golf scores have stabilized tremendously. Previously I used to play in the mid to high 90s. My last 3 scores has been 89, 89 and 90 on tough courses. The biggest improvement is that I have completed a golf wedge matrix with 1/3, 2/3 and full swing distances and now I am able to hit the greens over 80% of of the time within 30 yards to 90 yards. This limits most bad holes to bogeys.  There are stretches of 9 holes that I have only 2 over. However, my slices and pulls sometimes resulted in big numbers on a few holes. With the golf simulator, I can see clearly that I still have an out to in swing. When I consciously pretend to have a glove under my right arm pit I hit the balls really well with no pull or slice in practice. However, on the course my pulls and slices often come back which results in double bogeys or even triple bogeys when I lose my balls. I am really optimistic. With the simulator and instant feedback I think I will be able to resolved my out to in swing problem in a few months.
