I recently played a round of golf with a friend of mine. Every time he had a chip shot, he used a sand wedge. It didn't matter if he had a short chip shot or long chip shot. Every single time he chipped the ball, he chipped it with a sand wedge.

Let me tell you what the problem with that is. If you use a lofted golf club to chip a golf ball, you might be okay on the smaller chip shots, the short ones, where you don't have to make too big of a golf swing. But to make a golf ball go further when you're chipping, you have to make a bigger golf swing.

If I had a small chip shot, the backswing would go maybe a foot or a foot and a half long. If I had a longer chip shot, I would have to make a longer backswing. You have to be very talented to do that.

Here's something that will really help you. If you have a short chip shot, try chipping with a 9 iron. Ball in the middle of your stance, a little weight on your left leg, the handle over towards your left leg, and make an arm swing out of it.

If you have a medium length chip shot, the very same golf swing: ball in the middle of your stance, weight over to your left leg with the handle over on your left leg, and make another little arm swing. Because the loft is flatter, the golf ball will go further.

I'll take it a step further for you. Let's say you had a chip shot and you had to go all the way to the back of the green. Instead of making this long golf swing with a sand wedge, why not try a 5 iron? Ball in the middle of your stance, a little weight on your left leg, handle over towards your left leg, and make the same golf swing that you made with a 9 iron and the same golf swing you made with the 7 iron. I guarantee you this will help you.

Get a picture of what you're trying to do. You're trying to make the golf ball go a short distance in the air and a long distance on the ground for a long chip shot: a short distance in the air and a medium length distance on the ground for a medium chip shot; short chip, short distance in the air, and a little bit on the ground.

To do that, try to change the golf club. Control the distance you want the chip shots to go by your club selection, not by the length of your backswing.
