Jim, I need a good chipping tip. Any ideas? Dan Duncan, 33, Carlsbad, Calif.
Jim says: This sounds almost too simple, but it works. A mistake most amateurs make is they take their grip, then manipulate the clubface for the shot they want to hit open face for a flop shot, closed for a bump and run, and so on. Then when they swing, their hands want to return to square, which changes the shot. My advice is to set your body and clubhead up to the ball for the shot you want and then take your grip. That keeps your hands where you want them, so you won't manipulate the club.
