How far back from the tees is the board? How thick is the board?

Scott, just saw the same show, and reinforces the fact the golf instruction is confusing and frequently contradictory. One more factor in the well documented decline in the game of golf.

Been told for years for chipping...weight forward, some shaft lean, hit down on the ball coming in a little steep, basically trapping the ball. Then just watched a show on Golf Channel saying the old way is out, tour pros are chipping shallow, shallow, shallow. It's all about shallow, dont take club up, take it circular and lower. Weight more neutral, maybe a tad forward, shaft more neutral, maybe just a tad fwd lean. I laughed the whole time watching, as I had always been a picker with my wedges and brought that into my chipping and pitching game much more than the down blow, divot type shot. But I previously drank the koolaid and bought into the steeper angle, hitting more down, and altered my chipping style. But as I have been seeing more and more in current tips and lessons, using the bounce and hitting shallow is the way! They boast even if u hit a little behind the ball, u can get away with more margin of error. I have to laugh when i see teaching pros now saying exactly the opposite of what I've seen some of those same teachers say 6 months or a year ago. But when I see all the instruction about shallow chipping, I laugh that I had it right all along, but have spent all this time learning to approach it with the steeper angle. Then literally 2 minutes after I watched that show about steep being out and only for the amateur, and that it's all about shallow, I saw this vid in my email, opened it, and just had to bust out laughing. I mean, it was a great lesson , and I get it and am sure it would be great to improve that type of chipping. But how are we mere mortals supposed to get ahead with so much different, even contradictory instruction. I've said it before, and will repeat it here. In order not to confuse the hell out of the student golfer, and to not have us going back and forth between opinions and instruction and losing our form and instincts trying to learn or re-learn or dismantle something every 6 months, why don't instructors emphasize as follows: '"X" is only one method. There are others, even the opposite "Y". Here are some different situations where you might lean toward one method or another, or perhaps one or the other is more natural and comfortable for you generally. But here is a good lesson to improve method "x". ' I really think this approach to lessons needs to be RULE # 8 in the new 7 Golf Rules for casual play being hawked by the Golf Channel. We otherwise think one way is wrong and one is right and are changing what we do every 6 months. It's no wonder non-pros can't develop a muscle memory repeatable swing!! This isn't directed at you , of course, as the lesson looks great to improve the steeper angle downward blow chip. Just frustration with golf instruction generally. Always Confused, Scott ;-)

I chip either way. If I want more spin to stop the ball quicker, I'll come into it steeper. If I want it to release more, I come in more shallow. The only reason people get so confused is they want to be told how to do everything and expect it to just happen when they go play. They don't want to practice and figure out what works for them. If they did, they wouldn't hang on every word in a tip thinking it's "right" and anything else is "wrong".

Thanks for the tip. The weight on left foot is what percent. Does it vary with distance of chip and or pitch shot.

I noticed your ball position was still forward near left heel. Will this vary due to distance...i.e. farther forward more height and less roll and back lower for more roll? And will this work as well with 8 or 9 iron for a bump and run type shot?

I noticed your alignment was still close to your left heel. Should you keep it there if your weight is still left or do we as individuals find the spot as for me is more in the middle? Still hands ahead, yes/no?
Thanks

And to think, a short game guru like Dave Pelz teaches in his short game schools that the ball should be at your back ankle when chipping, in order to avoid the chili-dip.

Did your wedge have some bounce so that the steep angle didn't dig into the ground after the ball? Or did the sole go through the ball level to the ground even though the path was steep? Thank you.

Was that for a pitch or a chip? I thought that a pitch would be closer to the forward foot with the club more upright to get the ball in the air and the chip would be back with the club less steep to hit down to get it up and then down and rolling on the ground more than traveling in the air. I can understand that in both one needs a good hit, but aren't the angles of the hit different?

I'm surprised that you didn't take a divot with that steep of an angle.

The secret is minimizing the shaft lean when the club touches the ground. That's how you use the bounce of the sand wedge and prevent the club from digging.
