In this video, golf instructor Kellie Stenzel demonstrates a technique called the putt chip. This shot is useful when your golf ball has rolled just over the back of the green and is nestled down into the grass. The challenge is that the green is sloping away from you, making it risky to hit a traditional short game shot with a wedge. The putt chip offers a safer alternative that can help you get the ball onto the green and rolling towards the hole.
The putt chip is a valuable technique to have in your golfing arsenal, especially when faced with a challenging lie just off the green. By making a few adjustments to your setup and using your putter, you can execute a shot that is both safe and effective. So the next time your ball ends up in a tricky spot, give the putt chip a try and see how it can improve your short game.
