Every once in a while when you’re chipping, you’re going to find an area of the green that you’ll need the ball to roll out farther than it normally would. Instead of trying to hit the chip farther in the air with a club you may not be as comfortable with, take your favorite short-game club and roll over the face in the follow-through.

All of the students I have taught this to are amazed how well it works because they think they’re making an adjustment after the ball has already left the club. In reality, you’re adding topspin to the shot like you would with a passing shot in tennis.
