Four Wood Chip

Problem

You have difficulty chipping the ball from the fringe or it is windy and you want to keep the ball low without overshooting the green.

Cure

Try making a low chip using one of your woods or fairway woods.

Therapy

You could always simply putt the ball with a wood from this location. However, if you make a descending blow, it will the ball to hug the grass a little more for a better roll and control. Practice this shot with a 4 wood. Set your hands well ahead of the ball with the ball back in your stance. Make a slightly longer and steeper stroke than you would if putting it.
