I feel like a lot of questions can be answered by saying, GET FIT haha

Haha so true. But it really does make a difference. I tried to rephrase it so I wasn't that guy 🙂

Two tips I keep in mind that have improved my game.  "Strike the match"  Feel if your club is coming through the ball like striking a match, this keeps your club head accelerating.  Point  your right shoulder at the target. This forces you stance open a tad.  I keep my weight 60-40 on the front foot.

Best 2 tips I got were:

1) Weight in front foot.  I actually stand on one foot as a pre shot chipping routing to remind myself to do this.

2) Always use the same club.  I know there are times where chipping with a 7 iron make sense but I don't have the time to get proficient in it.  If I'm not confident it will show in my swing because I'll be thinking through the entire swing.  Outside of a  necessary lob shot (tucked pin having to go over a bunker) I always use my 54.  It gives me more predictable results as I know how it will spin and land and roll out.  The less I have to think about the better.

I recall my highschool golf coach watching me practice my flop shot walking up and saying:

 "you know there are other ways to chip right? You need to be more creative and understand situation. I watch you go for glory way to often."

Most of your weight on your front foot, forward press slightly with shaft to get the clubs leading edge down. Ball front of stance for high chip, back of stance for low chip. That was what helped me.

For my first two years of playing golf, I basically only did flop shots. It actually really hurt my ability to read green speeds on bump and runs because I only knew of flop shot turf interaction.

Does the leading edge of your club ever get stuck in the turn though? I find I hit balls fat if my shaft is leaning too far forward.

If there's too much shaft lean, it absolutely will have a greater chance of getting stuck in the turf. I should have clarified, but I only use this method on short chip shots around the greens where if you hit it fat it won't matter much.

There's a Phil Mickelson youtube video out there about chipping that's really good, very basic and easy to understand. I've shared with many friends and they said it was very helpful.

Return loft at impact 

Get the ball on the ground as quick as possible and let it roll out like a putt

Best advice came from my junior college coach post playing days...

Ground club on toe (think Steve Stricker putting setup) with a broom/putting stroke. Any strike on the sweet spot could come out hot with a lot of spin or normal with good runout. A strike out on the toe gives a more consistent flight and roll out. It works with any club but I find myself with either a pitch, gap, sand or lob wedge. If you want the ball to fly high and land soft, keep the shaft vertical. The more run out you want, the more shaft lean you put on it. You can almost hood the club a bit to get a lot of roll out. You do kind of stand like Bryson putts (broom-like with rigid arms) but it's been the best chipping advice I've had to date.

Use whatever club gets the ball on the green the soonest and get the ball rolling. for example: If I'm 2ft off the green and have 25ft of green to the pin.....little putterswing with an 8iron.
