     Does anybody know the fly to roll ratio for a SW thru 7 iron when these clubs are used for chipping?  Example: SW 1 to 1, PW 2 to 1, etc. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks, Ted

6 8 10 rule

10 is 1/2 fly 1/2 run
8 is 1/3 fly 2/3 run
9 is 1/4 fly 3/4 run

upslope, use a stronger club
downslop use a weaker club.

say u want a 1/2 fly 1/2 run downslope, not so severe use a sand wedge, severe use a lob wedge.

Thanks Nuke99,  looks like a simple method to use!  I usually use a LW for all chips, but I have experienced some fat shots.  One thing I like about the LW is that it takes most of the break out of a chip!  Thanks again, Ted

oh , lob is a bit more complicated but as effective.  This nice part about lob is you can use the bounce. I am starting to practice them and i have lots of fun with it.


The way i hit a chip using the lobwedge is

spine slightly ahead of the ball.
body square to target and straight or tilted towards the target.
butt pointing at leading pocket
Weight to 80% to the left
narrow stance.
Grip down so you stand over the club.
upper arms hugging the chest
trailing knees knocked in and remained knocked in throughout the swing. this will prevent fat shots !.

Rest the lobwedge behind the ball and head resting completely on the ground , hands relax. keep this hands/arms relax throughout the swing.

from there, turn your shoulder  keeping the upper arms hugged to the upper chests. in out in swing. keep your hands low during the swing. you can concentrate on the rocking the shoulder up and down.

same 1. and 2. rhythm nomatter the length of the swing.

1 inch of backswing = 1 feet of travel
1/2 fly 1/2 roll.
You can make fly more and travel less by cupping your lead wrist during the backswing.
you can make it fly less or roll more by bowing your leading wrist.

Its a variation thats more difficult to master. but alot more fun and accurate .

have fun :)
