Lesson From Kenny – “Chipping from a tight lie”
o Ball near the green
o Resting on a tight lie
o No trouble between your ball and the intended target
Try using your 8 iron – backswing to the inside, hit easy with a full release.
For a shot not requiring a “lofty” trajectory, try using a hybrid or fairway wood.
It puts over-spin on the ball and will roll up to the target similar to a putt.
If your shot requires a “lofty” trajectory, use your sand-wedge.
Swing easy with a full release.
Practice these kinds of shots and see what works for you.
