The Chip Shot

Posted by GalePeterson On February - 10 - 2010
A Low Running Shot, the Chip Shot travels more distance on the ground than in the air. Club Selection: 6-Iron through Pitching Wedge (match club to shot & lie) 6-Iron for long roll, 8-Iron for Medium Roll, Pitching Wedge for Short Roll. Usually played from just off the green but a great escape shot when you have to keep it low and just punch it out a short distance.
