When to add loft
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.
