Tip of the Day

A three-wood from off the green?

It may sound preposterous to some, but the three-wood chip is a great shot to have in your arsenal when the ball lies no more than a foot into the first cut of rough. For starters, a three-wood won’t snag.

The key to working this shot is to keep the left arm fairly straight but relaxed throughout. The more tension, the quicker the stroke, resulting in a loss of distance control. Grip down with the palms facing each other, similar to the way you would grip a putter. Place the forefinger and thumb of your lower hand on the shaft for better feel and control of the clubhead. Then, use your wrists to pop the clubface into the ball. That will propel the ball airborne just enough to coast along the top of the grass.
