    That’s all well and good when you have green to work with and a flat lie. Put the ball on the downslope in front of him and move the pin closer. How is that shot managed?

      Hi Roy. Thanks for watching the videos and your response. Every situation is certainly unique, but the technique being demonstrated in this video for a downhill chip shot could also be utilized in the situation you mention. The benefit of this shot is to deaden the ball and attempt to reduce the amount of roll (vs. hitting it in the sweet spot) because the chip is downhill. So if you added into the situation being on a downhill lie as well and having a tight pin, the same technique could be utilized to try to reduce the amount of roll and get the ball closer to the hole than you otherwise might be able to. This is a specialty shot and might not be for everyone. The intent was to give you another option to try practicing and if it’s something you are comfortable with, have it as an option the next time you’re faced with this situation. Thanks again for the question and watching. Good luck on your next round!

    I’ve tried this on putts (hitting on the toe) with success but never thought about using it on chips. Thanks for the tip, I’ll try it.
