The correct technique to use when chipping with a wedge

Short game is a difficult area of golf to master, but once you feel comfortable with a wedge in hand, you can play a range of different shots to help get your ball closer to the hole.

Different wedges provide different lofts and have different bounces. This means that choosing the right wedge for your shot is absolutely crucial.

Deciding which wedge to use will be based on different factors, such as your lie, what's in front of you and how far away the pin is.

YouTube star and PGA Professional Chris Ryan has teamed up with TaylorMade Golf for a three part series where he explains the different types of shots you can play with a wedge in hand and the correct technique that's required.

The first video is all about the 'chip shot' which can often lead to amateur golfers digging their wedge into the ground for a dreaded duff or it causes golfers to get flicky with their hands, leading to a thin, where your ball goes flying across the ground and nowhere near the hole.

Watch the clip below, where Chris explains why the chip shot can be so useful and how you need to go about it.


In the video, Chris uses a 52 degree TaylorMade Milled Grind 2 wedge, used by some of the best players on the PGA Tour.

With the new MG2 wedges, engineers have utilised the combination of face and groove design to create the ultimate spin for ultimate performance. Raw Face design produces a more precise geometry designed to optimise spin and feel.
