The “Bump and Run” shot is one that flies low, lands about 2 feet on the green, and runs out to the hole.  This is a very safe and reliable shot for most amateurs.  Using a lofted club makes this shot more difficult.  The less loft you use, the easier the shot.  Head to the chipping green and find out which club in your bag flies halfway and runs to the hole.  Then choose a club that will fly 1/3, run out to the hole, and finally find a club that flies 1/4 and rolls out to the hole.  Once you have those clubs, each time you have a chip shot on the course, you will know exactly which club to chip with to give you the greatest chance of success!  Thanks to Jim Furyk for the tip and aabo692565 for sharing.

The misconception with a lot of amateurs is that if you use a longer shaft you will hit the ball further!  

Now, there is some truth to that statement.  However, there is a point of no return with each and every player when it comes to shaft length.  If you are a very accurate driver of the golf ball and you are not very long off the tee, a longer driver might work for you.  A lot of ladies come to mind here.  But, if you hit the ball over 250 yards and are not very accurate, then a shorter driver might help you get the ball in the fairway more often.  Would you like a 175 yard shot into the green from the middle of the fairway or a 150 yard shot from the tree or thick rough? I thought so!

E Michael Johnson of Golf Digest brings us this interesting story!

Will a shorter Driver help your accuracy to hit more fairways?

Jim Furyk plays with a shorter than standard Driver!

As golfers continue to seek distance off the tee, many companies have responded by producing drivers with a stock shaft length of 45½ inches or, in some cases, longer.

But is that always better? Perhaps not.

For some, a shorter driver shaft might lead to more confidence, more control, and with that, finding the center of the clubface more often. During a past Golf Digest Hot List summit, we conducted a test with a multiple-time winner on the PGA Tour who hit tee shots with drivers measuring 44, 46 and 48 inches. The best results in distance and dispersion came with the 44-inch club.

Jim Furyk is 100% correct on this.  Amateur golfers tend to tee the ball up too high when hitting a 3 wood.  

You want the ball to sit barely off the ground and try and catch the ball right at the bottom of the arc.  The ball position will help this! Do not try and hit up on it!  Thanks to Callaway Golf for this great video on the easiest shot in golf from a Major Champion!

I was playing the Mizuno Pro-Am in 2015, which takes place the week directly after the AT&T.  The course is obviously in superb condition.  I drove the ball a little too far right on the 8th hole and ended up with a second shot just inches from the face of a cliff that dropped some 100 feet into the ocean below.  Needless to say, it was a scary shot that I managed to pull off and landed just short of the green.

Below is a picture of my second shot that was taken by one of my playing partners.  There is no way I was going to follow through all the way onto my front foot!

I think this shot by Jim Furyk that week before was a little scarier! A braver man than me!

It’s the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February 2015.  

Final round and Jim Furyk, on the 6th hole, finds his ball in the jagged rocks on the side of a cliff.  What he does next is truly amazing.  Thanks to PGA Tour for this exciting shot.  Would you try this?

When I teach chipping at my school, I tell my students, “The Golden Rule” in chipping is “Fly the ball in the air as little as possible, and roll the ball as much as possible.” 

And they all seem quite surprised by that statement because most club golfers tend to chip with a lofted club no matter the distance.  Jim Furyk, multiple winner and Major Champion on the PGA Tour, gives us the same message but adds a few little gems like standing a little more upright, similar to your putting stroke!  Thanks to nollprod for posting this.

We are all very tired of hearing the numbskulls holler out “Mashed Potatoes” or “Baba Booey” or “Get in the Hole” after the PGA Tour player hits the ball.

Besides being annoying to listen to, some people have taken to yelling out before the player has even finished his swing.  At the 2014 PGA Championship, one could see that Jim Furyk was very annoyed with one of these idiots who shouted loudly during the middle of Furyk’s swing.

If all the players and the majority of the fans want this to stop, how do we go about it?

Adam Staelin, founder and editor of ThreeGuys Golf blog, has a three-step plan that I think is excellent.

"Get in the Hole" needs to be gone - Are Galleries are out of Control?

Golf crowds have become more vocal in recent years.

I will admit it. The first time I heard someone shout “Get in the Hole!” when Tiger teed off it was kinda cool. Cut to ten years later and I want to punch every idiot who thinks his claim to fame will be having his voice broadcast across the nation. Honestly, I do not know how Tiger has held it together all of these years without sending someone to pull a Nancy Kerrigan on these numb-skulls.

At best, these guys are annoying. At worst, they have crossed the line and are now interfering with play. For example, during the final round of the PGA Championship, Jim Furyk was clearly annoyed by someone who shouted before he even finished his swing.

So the question is: what can we do to stop this epidemic before it gets any worse? Well, here is my three step plan.

1) Utilize Peer Pressure:

Look, there are at least 15 people who can point out the culprit. Imagine if all fifteen people turned to him and said “hey jack-ass! why don’t you shut the fuck up”. Sure, it’s a bit on the vigilante front, but this is our game, we can have a say.

2) Empower the Marshalls:

First, clearly write on every ticket that anyone caught shouting above a normal level or blurting out nonsense will be politely escorted from the premises. Sound too harsh? I don’t think so and NFL and MLB teams have been doing it for years. Just because you bought a ticket does not mean you can act a fool.

3) Hold Courses Accountable:

The PGA can simply tell all venues that going forward their ability to maintain control of the crowd will be an influencing factor as to whether they bring an event back. Money talks and if the PGA was serious about the threat I guarantee Baba Booey would not be found.

"Get in the Hole" needs to be gone - Are Galleries are out of Control?

Applaud, Cheer, but don’t yell!

Now for those of you who think I am making a mountain out of a mole hill, I would point you toward my twitter feed was full today with calls to end the mashed potatoes. Even players like Ian Poulter got into the mix. The question is will the PGA get serious? Now “get off my lawn!”
