Next, Abraham focuses on distance control during chipping . He explains that getting too close to the ball can cause the hands to go out and result in hitting the ball off the handle. To avoid this, Abraham suggests standing about a foot away from the ball. This allows for better control and prevents mishits.
Adjusting Club Face and Loft
Dale Abraham also addresses the issue of a closed club face. He suggests opening the club face slightly by holding it up and then gripping it. This adjustment helps to ensure a more open club face at address, which can lead to better ball flight and control.
Furthermore, Abraham recommends using a sand wedge to achieve more stopping power. The higher loft of a sand wedge allows for a softer landing and a shorter roll. This can be particularly useful when faced with challenging greens or when trying to stop the ball quickly.
