Chipping and Pitching for me has finally turned a corner and I can get up and down in a relatively consistent manner. I used to blade it, hit supper fat shots, I would use my putter four or five feet off the green. But for me I really experienced with different techniques. First is aim point. Most people when chipping and pitching focus on the pin. This is a bad aim point and most times people fly the ball the that location and it rolls out to much. For me when chipping and pitching it is pretty boring. I hit the ball on the front of the green and let it roll up. Before getting your chipper spend some time working on different techniques. Swinging the club the shortest distance leaves the least amount of room for mistakes. So if you are just of the green and have a lot of green to work with chip with a 7i. I like my PW for chipping around the green. I feel that I have a lot of confidence and can control that shot. I think step up and confidence is the key to these shots. Try putting your weight on your front foot, ball in the center stance and used the bounce of the club. Practice, practice, practice.
