Hi

I have read Dave Pelz short game and understood that he wanted hand action away for consistency and synchronized swinging to be controlled.  The more the club travels without being pulled or forced the more balanced and harmonic the swing will be.  I think using the normal swing thoughts, but more controlled and "pendulum" like is good.

I also started using the lob wedge for most of my chips and pitches. Using the same one-plane swing for all shots seems to be the most consistent technique.  I remember an article by Nick Faldo using a towel tucked underneath both arms and keeping it there throughout the entire swing and using the core to provide the power.  The only thing I do diffferently is use my hybrid Hogan 3 to hit longer bump and run shots.  This seems to work well from 10-15 yards off the green.

In response to the post that Jimmy Ballards method is similar to the one plane swing could not be further from the truth.  Ballard's method requires a significant move back and forward on all full and short shots. He also teaches a more upright position.  I have seen this method taught for the last years from one of Ballard's teachers.  Don't confuse the 2 swings.

At the International Tournament at Castle Pines today, Gary Koch demonstrated the "body" swing keeping the hands and arms passive for pitch shots of all lengths. The one-plane swing is going strong!

Anybody see Paul Azinger on PGA clinic repeat on The Golf Channel.

He was advocating chips using the bounce on the sand/lob wedge instead of the leading edge.

Very similar to sand trap technique where club head slides under ball with more of a "flat spot" at the bottom of the swing.

I tried it out and it works really well, particularly from long grass (which was one of his points). He said that most pros chip this way.

Ball tends to fly higher with little or no spin and rolls very little. Sounds similar to the Woods technique mentioned earlier.
