Handling Chipping Areas
June 07, 2009
Using a putting grip and smooth, arcing stroke, bounce the ball up the slope and let it roll on. Keep your head steady and accelerate for a solid hit.
Choose a landing spot, and make a downward strike, trying to carry the ball about halfway there. Finish low to encourage a descending blow.
Play the ball forward, and let your wrists hinge back and through. Keep your spine angle constant for solid contact. Land the ball where the hill flattens.Ranked No. 4 on Golf Digest's list of America's 50 Greatest Teachers, McLean is based at Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami. Click here for more tips from McLean.
