This site just gets better the more I look, Handle forward, totally blown away what I used to do...

Do you always have wrist cock chipping Martin?

Once again the "opposite" feeling seems right

Sam, yes the position of the right foot determines where the weight is. I chip with almost my whole set...although rare that I need to go to less loft than an 8 iron if landing the ball on the green.

I believe (for me) in using all different clubs, it comes down to which one I 'feel' gives me the easiest shot. Always look for the simplest shot to execute. Often that WILL be an 8 iron, but sometimes you will have to use too much finesse with an 8 iron, that is when I would go to more loft.

Great vid martin, where's the weight, looks like it stays left of the ball, I guess what you are saying about ball position and moving right foot is your way of moving the weight back?

Also what club do you usually chip with? I used to always chip with a PW, I switched to always chipping with an 8 (advice from a guy who's got a really awesome short game) on the basis that I get a more consistent distance that is much less dependent on the lie I'm in.

Martin,
I've never heard the concept of the always going forward in the chip shot, but........it makes perfectly logical sense and creates all the correct alignments and force vectors.
Can't wait to try this out.
