Video Golf Tip | Chipping From Divots
By Tim Cusick

In a previous video clip I spoke about playing a shot off the green off of tight dormant grass with a fairway wood, preferably a three wood. I am going to take it one step further in this clip. I have the same scenario where I am just off the green and I have selected not to putt but my ball has ended up in a divot so any time you have the ball sitting below the surface of the grass it is very difficult to get a club down underneath it to pitches the ball up in the air. What I am going to do is play the same shot with my three wood. I am going to choke down on the club, put the ball back in my stance, lean the handle forward and just make a putting motion. You can see initially the ball bounces a little bit but it runs very nicely up the bank and on to the green a couple of feet from the hole. So any time you are in an imperfection around the green and you choose not to chip a great alternative is to use your three wood and putt it the way you normally would. Play that shot and you are going to get it up and down a lot more times.
