  1. I think I am experiencing a brain fart. Ball comes to rest some 20 yards off the green, maybe 15 feet of green to work with after that. It's maybe 4 feet elevated. No other obstacles. Let's say a flat-ish green. Medium rough lie and the same stuff to up to the fringe. Decent lie in that rough. I hope I covered enough detail. I am not great at chipping that far with the sand wedge. I am so tempted to try to flop something with the sand wedge or maybe a tiny pitch because I do not want to deal with rolling through the rough with a pitching wedge so close to the top of the arc. Insufficiently loft just a bit and I will end up parking the ball before it gets to the green. Somehow, with no specific obstacles in the way, the shot options all seem so risky. I seem to be encountering this scenario a lot these days. I feel like this should not be such a difficult decision, but I just do not see what the conventional wisdom would dictate. What would you do? What am I not seeing clearly here?
  2. I appreciate your advice and help, this shot is a challenge for me and I am not figuring it out. Your insight on club selection and how you hit the ball is appreciated. The Shot: Ball has nestled into the thick, like real thick grass just past the fringe. It maybe 3" to 6" into the thick stuff. The shot is downhill with the cup at the legal 8' from the edge of the green so you very little green to work with. Due to the quality of the rough and how thick it is more times then not the grass is wet, especially when it is a early morning round. Later in the day this thick near PGA quality type rough will dry out but still the grass really maintains the moisture. Then also the green speed has picked up. These greens roll exceptionally well, they are very fast. At one time at a 12.5 stimpmeter reading. They have brought the speed down a tich, like between a 11 & 12 now. But if you find your line these greens roll so true that it you can trust them. Quick recap: Very thick rough, ball is nestled down, you can see it. Probably 6" deep The fringe is like 12" 8' of green to work with Downhill on fast greens, after the cup is a lot of down hill so if you hit it to firm you will be in a very long up hill putt that is more then likely a 2 putt now. I am at work and will be checking back from time to time so sorry for any delays in responding
  3. Hi! I'm struggling with chip shots with my wedges. Let's say I have 25 yards to the pin and I have to fly the ball 15-20 yards to land it on the green. My typical miss is a duff (maybe feeling unsure, not moving the weight to the left), but recently I also started topping! This happens both with my 52 and 58 degrees. PW works better but goes too low. Any advice? Any swing thought? Any drill? Thanks in advance!
  4. I have seen professional golfers intentionally chopping at the ball (with success, mind you) when hitting a chip shot from crappy rough. For clarity, the club stops jjst after making contact with the ball, digging itself into the turf. It seems counterintuitive to me. Needless to say, I do not have any particular skill with this, so I browsed for a video to look into it. I could not find one, so I am posing the question to all of you. What is purpose of hitting the ball this way? Would you consider it a required skill or more of an option? Can you post a video for it?
  5. I know it's hard to do this without looking at my swing but I am hitting all of my pitch shots high on the face and out on the toe. I don't have any issues with this with my irons or even knock down wedge shots. But for some reason when I get around the green and try to elevate the ball I hit it out on the toe and high on the face. Any ideas?
  6. Help! I need help chipping around the greens. I have been taught the Some some, Some No and No No story, but I still often hit the ground or blade it. What can I do to correct this? Also, I am TERRIBLE out of the sand. I have always been taught to aim for 1 inch behind the ball (this is when chipping from the sand, not long distance) but I often get all sand or all ball. I welcome all mockery, as long as you provide a tip. (that's what she said). Thanks in advance.
