Hybrid chip from just off the putting surface!

Last week on Short Game Saturday we discussed using a putter from just off the green.  This is for a situation when the hole is fairly close to the edge of the green.  However, when the hole is a lot further away, there is a lot more emphasis placed on feel.  By using a hybrid (2 or 3)and using it like a putter, you can have a fairly consistent result.  

The Method.

Get into your putting stance and take your normal putting grip.  Do a few practice swings to judge how hard you are going to hit the shot.  Try and hit the shot about the same strength as you would hit a putt of the same distance.  The major difference is you do not have to take the fringe into account as the hybid will lift the ball over the fringe and the ball will roll down to the hole!

This, like most short game shots, will take some practice to get the feel of the ball off the clubface and the amount of roll you can expect on this shot.  Remember, this is a shot for those of you who are not very good chippers.  For those of you who are, I still prefer a chip shot with a straight-faced club in this instance.  So, off t0 the practice green you go, to add another short game shot to your ever-growing short game repertoire learned at the Mel Sole Golf School.
