    Nice tip… when you use this type of shot how much distance do you lose from s normal shot with the same iron?

    Thanks
    PS your chipping technique works great for me getting close and even chipped in too

      Kennion,

      You may not lose any distance as you are de-lofing the club. If you just did a short backswing though you might want to take an extra club.

      Glad you are doing well with my chipping technique. Just see this as a long chip. In no time you can get good at them.

    Paul, on the setup for chipping and subsequently the set up for knockdown whether using a sand wedge or say an eight iron setting up as described a 4 knuckle grip
    Forward to left thigh doesn’t the club face get totally closed be it an 8 0r SW? Thanks JIm

      James,

      Yes, the face would be closed. It is not hooking though because you are making sure your hands hit the ball where they started.

    Paul, is this the shot I use out of deep rough?

    Great tip Paul,
    I was curios though about distance and arms/hands. I am trying very hard not to use my hands and arms and getting better. When hitting this shot, how much tension do you have in your hands and arms. So, if I hit my 7 iron about 150-155, if I do a knock down 7, what should I be hitting? maybe 135?

    Thanks so much for what you are doing. You have helped me very much.
    David

      David,

      Glad you like the the tips. I appreciate the support.

      I try to keep them turned off coming down and through impact. This means I am not adding any extra to hit or help the shot. So to me my arms feel powerless.

      For the knock down shot, you would be de-lofting the club so depending on backswing length and how fast you are swinging you can actually get the same distance. I typically take one more club because I do a little shorter swing. Once you get good at the shot you will be able to determine if you need one more club or not.
