The Perfect Chip Shot
“Wedges are used around the green from 120 yards [away] and down,” Parnevik says. The goal for your chip shot should be to drop the ball on the green with minimal roll. With a more open face and heavier head than a traditional iron, the wedge is the club for the job. you can approach the swing in a similar fashion as you would a drive.
“[The chip] is a shorter movement, but the actual posture and swing is very similar to a drive,” Parnevik says. Know your limits— it’ll help in the end. “If you ask [an amateur] how long they hit a 7-iron, they’ll say 170 when it’s closer to 155,” Parnevik says. “Use more club than you think you’ll need.”
