For this shot, use a sand wedge and move your ball position just to the left of your belt buckle.
Open your blade and keep your hands leaning forward into the back of the ball.
Create solid contact while opening the clubface as you move through impact.

Peter, I appreciate your kind comments. Glad you like the lessons. Thanks for taking the time to share. Sh
How can I make a ball check-up and stop when around the green on a long chip shot?
The best way to teach yourself–practice off very tight lies. This will teach you to bottom the club out in the exact spot of impact everytime. Remember to keep the speed at impact. It does take a longtime to develop this shot. However, once you have it–its awesome. Sh

Marcus–thanks for the kind words. Glad to hear your shot-game is rocking!! Keep it going. Hump
the three in one chip (which has always confused me,) was terrific, but only after i watched it over and over because the backswing is also the key. that is, the top of the handle was toward target at the back of transition zone, but slightly down. the middle shot was not parallel to ground for the shaft, but almost, and the forward highest shot was parallel with handle top facing the spot you intended, and the strike had a little more authority which is exactly what the pros do with that shot. tiger and phil swing for the fences at times for the flop shots they hit. using the technique of the three ball positions, and the proper backswing and strike, it worked like a charm. now to practice. being a guy who taught elementary school, i appreciate good teaching. the videos lately have been wonderful, by you, and others. nice job guys.
Bob–Thanks for the note. Great to hear the success you are having with the videos. We will keep teaching! Sh
I’m playing off a 2 and recently have been struggling with my chip and pitch shots, they are coming off really low and would like to get a bit more height on them
First I would definitely recommend my new DVD “Short Game Performance” training system that teaches you the short game system that the majority of the best players in the world now use. As for the technical–go to a higher lofted club and or move the ball up in your stance, its too far back in your stance.
I bring you greetings from Alexandra in New Zealand and want to thank you so much for the fantastic tips I receive every week from you on Hump Day. May you and your family have a wonderfull xmas and new year.
Hey Mel–Can’t thank you enough for your holiday greetings. I wish you the very best this holiday season. Shawn
close to green with bunker in front but no grass under the ball
how do you hit the shot>>>
Paul–You want to use a chipping stroke with a ton of speed. It the only way you can hit this shot.
