Okay, that makes sense, I was just asking because my miss has seemed to be "fluffing" it, sliding it too far underneath and leaving it short. 


I only use that technique from the fairway or fringe. It doesn’t work very well out of the rough. That will be another segment.

You’ll have to keep the speed up or you will short yourself every time. If you are going to use it, I use the middle of the flagstick as my aim point, just to make sure I get it there, unless I know it is going to roll a lot, then it’s all feel.

Oh, thanks, that explains it. I should have realized that by now. 😬😬😬

Yeah. Confusing... dang. I always pick a landing point a bit short of the stick. But my last look is the middle of the stick.

Point is. With the face that wide open it will take more speed to get it there, that’s where the spin comes from.

Just wanted to jump on here and say thanks for sharing your wisdom and advice on chipping. Went to the chipping green to get a feel for some Srixon Z Star XV'S and was hitting some good ones. This thread encouraged me to open the face more, trust the bounce to the point where I'm focusing on keeping the clubhead lower longer, and feeling the club leading the downswing then aggressively swinging. Its magic! The greens were firm, so the ball was rolling out a bit, but I did hole one from about 60 feet.

Glad you had some success.

I haven’t forgotten about this thread. Still settling in here in Maryland.

There is one heck of a short game area at the course. Just have to find a timeframe that it isn’t slammed. Might be winter when everyone else is too chicken to play.

We don't have a great short game area, but it's adequate.  I'm amazed that almost no one is ever using the pitching/bunker area.  People show up, hit a bucket of balls, putt 10 balls, then head to the tee when their name is called.  I can spend an hour pitching balls from different yardages, and maybe one person hits 10-20 shots then leaves.  

I have no idea how many shots I've saved because of my short game practice, but I know it's a lot.  Some people don't get it.
