US Open Qualifying 2014

The photo below was taken at River Landing in Wallace NC, during the first round of qualifying for the US Open.


Score on the day – Level par 72 which included an unfortunate double at the 18th  (Drive hit the cart path and went OOB)

Playing a controlled chip shot…..

Position the ball toward the back of your stance

Chip 1

For distance control and feel~ maintain a light grip throughout the stroke (Do not tense)

Chip 2

Stay level throughout the shot and keep eye contact with your strike point.

Chip 3

Accelerate through the shot, do not break your wrists, let the club do the work.

Chip 4
