Chipping with a Hybrid
Your wedge isn’t always the club to use, especially when you’re just off the green and your ball is resting on a tightly-mown area of fairway.
I see a lot of golfers choose a wedge and a lot of the times when they’re hitting this shot they connect a little bit behind the ball and often have the same shot again.
Plan B… give your hybrid a try.
The hybrid is a great shot for this because it’s really simple… it’s a very simple motion, very similar to your putting.
Having this extra shot in the bag can help save some strokes off your score.
The picture of Mike shows how on a steep slope up to the flag a hybrid is a good choice of club.
Watch the video of Mike playing the shot and his result to within 12 inches of the hole.
