Golf Tip – Chips and Pitches

Just getting your ball onto the green is not enough to consistently save par or bogey when you miss a green.  Take a little extra time to look at the green and pick out the slopes that will affect your ball as it moves toward the hole.  Pick out your landing spot and check to see if the green is soft or firm at that point.  Read the remainder of your line as you would read a putt and decide on the line that you will need to get your ball close.  If you have a choice, always leave yourself with an uphill rather than a downhill putt after you pitch or chip.
