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. (not sure who nollprod is, but thanks anyway)
