Play Fat-Free Chips

Friday January 25th, 2008

Back in the day, when you wanted to rat out someone who was giving you trouble, you "dropped a dime" on them. With this drill you can drop a dime on trouble and clean up your short game on long chips and short pitches, up to about 60 yards. To banish fat and thin wedges for good, place a dime three inches behind your ball and think "shallow" back and through. You want to hit the dime and the ball. Don't sweat a few chunks at first — that means you're a little steep. Keep at it and you'll soon groove a reliable path that offers a huge margin of error, and always — always! — gets the ball airborne.
