The Basics To Chipping
A "chip shot" in golf is a shot played from close to the green, usually within a few yards of the putting surface, that results in the ball popping briefly into the air, then hitting the ground and rolling forward toward the hole. The point is to get the ball up and over some intervening condition - such as a little bit of rough or fringe - that prevents you from just putting.
