I recently conducted a poll about which non-wedge do you most to chip around the green. I personally love using my 7-iron, but I was surprised that approximately 15% of the respondents use a hybrid to get the ball rolling quickly on the intended target. I have tried hybrids before, but have not really had much success getting the ball close to the hole. Do you use a hybid or a different club to chip around the green?
I have a general idea on how to use my hybrid, however this short video should help.
I can see the utility to using a hybrid, but it is a shot that I would have to practice often to get the feel of how the ball jumps off the club face. If this particular video did not work for you, try this one:
In the second video, Kathy Hart Wood used her hybrid from a distance I would not have thought of; yet she is putting after her stroke. I guess there really is not wrong answer on which club to use when chipping, but everyone seems to agree that practicing different shots is a great approach to lower our golf scores.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
