    When chipping from a farther distance to the front of the green, you mentioned taking a longer back swing. In practicing this it seems like a lot of feel needed and time to dial it in. I’m wondering do you try to keep the same swing speed on all the chips regardless of distance or what is the best way to dial these in when farther off the green?

      Yes, this takes practice. A lot easier trying to hit the front of the green than landing it half way. So for a longer chip you may go back a little more or accelerate faster. We are taking the difference of a few yards. So just look at the landing point and tell yourself to land it there. If so, you will figure out how you are going to do that. Like I said it is only a few more or less yards.
