Do you do it ?
do you see people doing it ?
Whats your thoughts ?

I chip of the practice green almost every night, I chip within 300mm from the edge to show edicate I also don't damage the green.
I have done this for years in front of club members and golf pro some times with the golf pro no problem.

Reason for asking is I just watched a youtube video and the comments are some what bad towards it.

No I don’t cos there is a sign near the green saying no hitting off chipping or putting greens. Personally I know that there is 40 hectares of other turf you can chip off, and there is always that one person that chunks it and just walks away without fixing it.

What are you asking? On? Off?

Around our greens are so tight its like a putting surface anyway 
our practice greens have 50mm high grass all around the green 
So to practice shots like the ones we encounter during play the only optician is 
place the ball on the green

I suspected that "chipping of the green" may have been akin to rub of the green.

But, from further discussions, it seems he may have been asking if we thought it ok if he chips from on the green, instead of from off the green, when practising.

The answer is NO, not ok.

When playing in a competition, the player determines what his best strategy is to minimise the number of strokes to hole out. If that means his best strategy is to chip from the surface of the green, then go for it. Then do your best to repair any damage you caused to the green.

I’m curious. If the result is the leveller, do we become one level of education at the end? I’ve got kids going in to high school and this could solve the public v private debate.

I am very well edumacated but can’t play golf very well. Why is this?
If I start playing better will I become levelled and lose some of my excessive cranial capacity? Is this Mouldy’s problem too?

I think it might work the other way.

We need to lose the cranial interference before we'll play better.

At the range yesterday I got into a zoned out, "not really thinking state" and seemed to hit the ball much better. As soon as I started to think about what I should do, I'd stuff up. Took a bit to get the brain out of the equation.

Mind you, this was after working on my drills and swing sequence change for a while where I have to think. Putting it together with the full no thought swing was when the zoned out state really helped.

I've found that was the key when I played better on course too in the past. Relaxed, no outcome focus, just shot at hand and follow routine and execute.

Might be something in this cranial interference?

EDIT: Sorry back on topic. Chipping 'on' the green? WTF? Surely at every practice facility or in a local park there is plenty of tight lie, hard compacted turf to practice off. Leave the putting surface for putting!

I don't see why you would need to apologise for a bad education? There are plenty of arseholes going around who should apologise for their shitty attitude, and don't.
