Golf Digest Middle East - - Play Your Best Short Game -

Out of the rough, you’ve got two op­tions. You can go hard and have a lot of wrist ac­tion, but then you’ll lose the con­trol. So it’s bet­ter to add speed with your shoul­der turn. The swing path is a lit­tle bit from the out­side to in. The quicker you can turn the shoul­ders through the shot, the more check you can get. For a five-yard straight­for­ward chip, sure you can use a putting ac­tion with min­i­mal hip and shoul­der turn. But as soon as you want to lift the ball up, you have to have hip and shoul­der ro­ta­tion. If you don’t, the club­face will over­take your hands and you’ll blade it.
