Hi mate, now that you have straightened out my drive, any chance you can spend a little time on my 20-40m chip shot. It's a shot I think as a 20 handicapper I have no business playing, however because I tend to miss a lot of greens (part of the reason I'm a 20 handicapper no doubt), it's one I seem compelled to play often. My stock answer when faced with this shot, conditions allowing, is to bump it up there with a 5 iron. It's probably time I added some arrows to the quiver. Forgetting execution for a moment, are there any "rules" around club face, backswing and path that I should at least get my head around first?

hi place, mate for me, get rid of that 5 iron...... you should be hitting a 52-60 degree'er for those shots.... hands forward, deloft the club, stance wide open, ball position back. hit down into the ball..... you want the ball to land right where you picture it landing..... you want to get that good at it that you are reading the greens and breaks from 10-30mtrs out from the pin.... path should be normal, face is square, but delofted. angle into the ball is the real key here at this distance with a high lofted club..... you want that high lofted club ballflight coming out low and hard.... only real time it all changes is for the 20mt or so flop

So here's the thing. I can do that, I just use a 5 iron so I don't have to deloft. Maybe I'm worse than I thought. Okay, let me give it another go, I have. 51 degree wedge, or a 56. The 56 wouldn't feel right.

You take a divot to hit 40m? Okay, I'm way out of my league here. So even though I said 56 wouldn't feel right, that's the club you want me to use? I'd better get to this, I've got a game coming up in a few weeks.

Hack, to be fair the supa at Huntingdale has less staff than other local courses and about half the budget of some to work with ( $800 k ) Until recently afew months ago the greens were in good condition. As for banging your head against a brickwall trying to unearth answers and getting the truth, I feel it would be easier to go straight to the relevant authorities for " the correct story " Jon... ps: only because the other 2 threads have been closed prematurely without answers !

Hey Hack, I just watched the Holden Scramble vid. Fair effort to hit a running drive after 14 cans ! But I wanted to ask how far you hit driver usually?

Thanks. Just noticed that you won the long drive. And it's not an over the top swing. As in it's almost abbreviated. You can see in all those swings (woods and irons) that you look to get solid compression. Kind of like you are restricting the backswing in order to get the hips in position. Even they look quite quiet to me. Obviously good timing. As I've played with Damo a few times and he seems to fire the right hip a bit more than you so just trying to get a feel for distances etc.

Damo doesn't hit it that far though, only another 100 or so over 250 :)

What is this golf game you talk of?

Yeah I know ! Just trying to get a feel for it. I think you extend a lot further at the top and drive the hips a touch more for instance. Just interested in where he is getting the power from.

Is 250 carry? I carry 220 reliably. Anything else is a fluke.
