Choosing The Best Club In Chipping

By Darren

A chip is a mini pitch or lofted putt about 5-10 meters from the edge of green. The object is to land the ball with the minimal flight distance to roll to the hole. The different loft of the club varies the amount the ball flies in the air and rolls after hitting the ground.

The  object of flighting the ball is to clear the rough which may deflect the ball before the green . The higher the loft the higher the trajectory of the ball and the less the ball rolls after hitting the green the longer the ball is in the air the less accurate the shot. 

FORMULA 12  - ( green edge to hole distance divided by  ball to green edge distance) = club number

  1. NORMAL RATIO: this means the ball to green edge is less than green edge to hole....aim point for ball to land is within 1 meter of  green edge.

method   

 COUNT STEPS FROM BALL TO EDGE OF  GREEN   = Y

  1. COUNT STEPS TO HOLE from green edge   =X
  2.  CLUB NO  = 12 –(X/Y)

e.g.           

12-(18/3)= 6 Iron

12- ( 35/7)= 7 iron

12- (24/6) = 8 Iron
