Chip and run technique
The basic low chip and run requires something like a 9-iron, and you should look to land your ball on a flat part of the green. The ball should be middle to back in your stance so that the angle of attack is steeper, the loft is less and it rolls more on landing. Feet and hips should be slightly open, and weight should be about 65 per cent on the front foot, putting your hands and sternum slightly ahead of the ball. From here, retain the triangle created between arms and shoulders and simply rock them back and through without breaking the wrists. Master this and you’ll not only get a consistent strike, but also know how the ball is likely to react and spin on landing.
