PRAC­TIS­ING CHIP SHOTS WITH­OUT HURT­ING ANY BY­STANDERS

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

▶ You know those “no chip­ping” signs by the prac­tice green? How they were al­legedly put there to pro­tect the turf? The golf club is play­ing you. They want to pre­vent 16-hand­i­caps from try­ing Phil Mick­el­son’s green­side flop shot and blad­ing one into the shin of the guy prac­tis­ing four-foot­ers. Use com­mon sense. Never try to carry the ball more than a me­tre or aim at a tar­get fur­ther than four me­tres away. And for all that’s holy, don’t try to be like Phil and see if you can hit one left-handed.
