Annother first class lesson ,Paul ,thank you .To make things easier I ‘ll refine your calculation chart :remember only one figure :12 ,
Then calculate the ratio between the CARRY and the ROLL.,when landing the ball one yard off the edge of the Green .Say its 3 yards CARRY and 9 yards Roll:the ratio is 3/9=1/3 Substract the DENOMNATOR 3 from 12 :you get 9 .The club to use is the 9 Iron .
If the ratio is 1/1 ,12 -1=11 .its the 11 Iron that is the gap wedge 52

I have heard of that calculation before. It’s gives you the right club every time.

Thanks for the lesson in which we had a carry of 5 paces and a roll of 5 paces. Hence the use of a sand wedge.
For the back stroke,the hands should stop opposite the right thigh.
what if the carry was 7 paces and the roll 7 paces.
what adjustments are required to make a carry of 7 paces using a sand wedge?
You are going to take the club back the distance that will hit the ball 7 paces. This may be a tiny bit farther back. 2 paces is not the much.

At what point should you determine that the number of paces “to fly” is too long and that a pitch is more appropriate than a chip?
This depends where the pin is on the green. If you have farther to fly than you have to roll you are pitching. A 1:1 can be 10 yards from the green to a pin 10 yards on. You are pitching to hit the ball higher so it will not roll as far.
“Chipping or Pitching” tutorial answers my question perfectly:-)

The ratios all make sense and you do a very good job of making it understandable.
1. I don’t quite understand how to chip on the severe upslopes. Could you please assist with these?
2. What is a pros choice of when to chip and when to putt? Meaning, if the ball is on the second cut of grass around the green, is the best choice to putt?

If you are on a sever upslope you add 1 to the ratio. example: You would hit a 9 iron on a flat lie. Upslope you would hit 8 iron. Downslope you would hit PW.
It all depends where the pin is and how far off the green you are.

Does this chipping method use a take away of 45 degrees? If not what degree take away is used.
No idea what you are talking about here. 45 degrees? Please explain.
Chipping is like putting. You should be doing your putting stroke.

I’ll explain. The club face and ball on the ground at address are at zero degrees. Swinging the club on take away to a point parallel or horizontal to the ground behind the golfer would be a 90 degree take away or 9 on the face of a clock. A take away to a point vertical to the ground would be a 180 degree take away or 12 on the face of a clock. OK?
My question was what is the degree of take away on the Chip shots 4yards off the green; or in other words, to what number on the clock?
I am not even thinking like that. At address your club is leaning forward so it is not at 0. To go back I take the club from my left leg to my right leg then past my left leg. There is no clock. You are hitting it all of 4 yards. A backstroke this long will easily hit it this far. To go less either do a slightly shorter stroke or don’t accelerate as fast. Longer shots same or a little longer stroke and accelerate faster. Remember, chipping it like putting. Do you think of a clock when putting? No.
