WHY CHUNKING YOUR CHIPS ISN'T AS BAD AS YOU THINK?

Hitting behind the ball to most amateurs is a shot that haunts most amateur golfers. This is due to improper low point (club head) delivery. This means that if your angle of attack is shallow enough then you can chunk your chips and get away with a half decent result. Unlike the ones you see your friends hitting in winter league where the divot finishes on the ball.

 

So, how do you further understand the art of a chunk and run or slightly heavy chip shot?

 

  • PRACTICE HITTING AN INCH BEHIND THE BALL FROM A TIGHT LIE.

  • KEEP THE ANGLE OF ATTACK SHALLOW

  • MAINTAIN/ GATHER SOME SPEED

 

This is simply a brief introduction to put your mind at ease when chipping, being that you know that the club will bounce, and it will provide you with some relatively good contact.

 

Bounce, and specifically the bounce angle, is added to prevent a wedge from digging into sand or turf, stopping the momentum of the club through the ball (golf a lot.com).

 

But what is the bounce?

 

Wedge bounce is the angle created between the leading edge and the lowest point of the sole or trailing edge. This is the area of the club that hits through the ground as it contacts the ball. The greater the wedge bounce degree, the higher the leading edge is off the surface at address (Vokey.com)

 

 

THE CLUB WILL BOUNCE BACK UP FROM THE TURF – So just commit to the shot ad keep the delivery shallow like a aeroplane landing on a runway.

 

We will be uploading some bounce related videos on how to do this method and gain confidence with your chipping and also the different ways you can make it work which will soon be uploaded to our YouTube channel.
