Question

How can I chip it like the pros?

April 24, 2019

Bobby’s Answer

Watching the Masters this year, I was especially impressed with the short game of Francesco Molinari.  His ability to make pars from difficult situations and continually get the ball up and down was phenomenal.  He came within one hole of tying Stuart Appleby’s amazing Masters record of 50 straight holes without a bogey or worse. At one point, Fracesco was 20 for 20 in getting the ball up and down when missing greens.  Compare that to Rory McIlroy who went 8 for 20 at one point.  That was the difference in Rory’s performance.  Short game is critical and it starts with understanding impact on chip shots and why we alter the set up.

    1. John,
      Depends on how much green you have to work with. Same impact for all clubs!
      To better impact,
      Bobby
