At the Surf Club on the chipping green, found some very thick rough. Open the blade and hit it like a sand shot letting the club slide under.

Ok, I see that pin and the "noodle" appears to be on the pin above the hole, is that what I am seeing? I thought they were putting the noodle in the hole to keep the ball up, do you just have to hit the noodle?

It's the practice chipping green - no holes. Surf uses the noodle on the course

ugp, great timing and thanks for that (well-executed) visual demo.

faldo and immelman were discussing that shot over the weekend at detroit gc. your video shows what they were explaining.

Faldo and Immelman argued over best way, they have to realize no one way is right. UGP did a great demonstration, he has game.

It seems very easy. Do you use a baseball grip for the chipping in the rough?

 

Thanks for this lesson and the video. I will use this method now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it was you that asked me how to hit that shot. I use my regular grip - good luck!

It was not me, but i am very pleased to know how to play this shot now. Do you use a SW or LW? I suppose that all depend of the distance to the hole. In the video, i suppose that it was a SW. Correct?

I like using my SW on these shots. For a shorter shot I will open the face even more. Surf's greens are wickedly fast which is why you don't see the ball fly all the way to the hole.
