Simple Chipping Formula

Golf TipKeep it simple.  Rather than guess how hard to hit your chip shots with the same club, try using this simple chipping formula for success.  Land all of your chip shots exactly one pace on to the green.  Set your distances by using different clubs.  Start with a sand wedge, land it one pace on the green and see how far it goes.  Go to a pitching wedge, then a nine iron, and eight iron until you go through them all, and you can see how far each will roll.  This way, all you have to do is hit the ball one pace on the green, and the club will do the rest. It is much easier than using a wedge and guessing at how far the ball will carry and whether the ball will spin or roll out.
