You’ll soon be able to hit chips in your sleep using this method. When you’d like to chip the ball longer distances or even pitch it, adopt a more traditional setup. It’s easy. Start as before, but turn your whole body to the right. Rotate about 30 degrees, with the ball about two feet away. Next, use your upper body to sole the club behind the ball, with the face square to the target.

Feel Free to Go Long
With this setup, you’re free to make a slightly bigger backswing but not so free to yank the club off-plane. As before, hinge your wrists and fold your right elbow. Make the same downswing—push the club to the ball with your right arm while softly turning toward the target. Through impact, extend your arms and keep the clubhead low to the ground.
