When to add loft

Golf Monthly - - Instructions -

Some­times you will need a higher chip, per­haps to carry a downs­lope that risks shoot­ing the lower chip for­wards on land­ing. Switch to a wedge – per­haps your 56˚ – but be aware that this is a bit more high-tar­iff and harder to ex­e­cute than the sim­ple chip and run. The good news is that, this aside, you can use ex­actly the same set-up and tech­nique, but just put a lit­tle more power into the shot. Ideally, the ball will carry the downs­lope, stop a lit­tle bit quicker but still have enough en­ergy to get all the way to the hole.
