Chipping With Your Hybrid - Video Blog
Chipping with a hybrid is a great option when you can't decide whether to putt from off the green or chip with a wedge. And is a great option during the winter time when you can get some of those tight lies on the dormant grass.
So, caught in between? Pull the hybrid!
As mentioned in the video:
- Make contact out on the toe of the club
- Choke down to the graphite/steel below the grip
- Elevate the handle and set up like you are hitting a putt.
Also, make sure that the handle of the club maintains its speed through impact (no slowing down and flipping at the ball). To change distances, make sure to vary the length of your stroke. Do not try to change the distance the ball travels by changing the speed or pacing of the club.
Try adding this shot to your short game arsenal. It is an easy shot and will take strokes off of your game immediately.
