Chipping Basics

Updated: Jan 25, 2023

When to use a chip shot:

Use this shot when you want to hit a low running shot to the hole.

What club to use:

You can use a Pitching Wedge, 9 iron, 8 iron or even a Hybrid

How to hit a chip shot:

1. Line up to the ball to your target

2. Have a little more weight on your front leg (left for right handers, right for lefties)

3. Choke down to the end of the grip, this gives you more control (it isn't a power shot)

4. Have the ball about middle or a bit further back in the stance

5. Then rock the shoulders right to left and follow through to your target

Make sure your don't break your wrists - play this shot like a putt.
