Stop Hitting Fat Chip Shots

A lot of amateurs hit chip shots around the green fat. How can you stop doing that?

The first thing to check is your setup. Oftentimes, players set up with a closed clubface, which tends to dig the lead edge into the ground. Make sure the clubface is square or even slightly open so that the club can shallow and use the bounce.

Get the ball slightly forward in your stance, hands ahead of the ball and turn around your spine angle.
