There are many different techniques a golfer can use to chip around the green. I use a plethora of techniques to chip, but one I have not really mastered using a hybrid with which to chip. I have tried it many times, yet I cannot seem to find the right opportunity to us a hybrid. Maybe I am not thinking about it properly. Or maybe I have not practiced enough with a hybrid to feel comfortable enough to make it my club of choice.
I find it interesting that I use my 5 iron the same way Butch Harmon (at least I think it is Butch Harmon) says to use a hybrid for chipping. However, I use my 5 iron in long grass and not in the short stuff.
Chipping is difficult as the best of times. Knowing which club to use when is always a good thing. It is especially good to have a multitude of approaches to for each chip. I have many different shots in my back, but using a hybrid is not one I am comfortable with using.
Do any of you reading this article use a hybrid while chipping? If so, is something special or unique about your technique? Is it a specialty club only?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
