When you're faced with a shot near to the green it's pretty instinctive that you're going to start looking at the shorter clubs in your bag the lob wedge of the sand wedge the pitching wedge maybe. That isn't always the right example in the right case and particularly when you look at the world's best players sometimes it takes some pretty long irons out their bag when they're just off the side of the green. and it can be a bit worrying to think well we've got ten yards to go and while we got a six iron and a six. I normally go miles and miles the reality of this shot is we're not going to use the six iron in a normal way we're going to is a six iron to hit a chip and run a shot. Now a chip and run shot is very simply a ball that chips a little bit and runs a little bit we imagine that we were playing down the slope here towards the edge of the practice ground and we wanted to hit a little shot we've got options we could go really high with this we could throw one up in the air and land it down there but actually if we had.

We had nothing in the way flat fairway flat green and I said OK play that shot I might be intending to just do that to get it down and roll across the floor and if I think that's the safest way to roll the ball and surely that's the safest way to hit the ball as well. So the way I play this shot now would be with my six iron with the ball back in my stance with my hand down the grip my shaft leaning forwards and I've got a putting stroke it's simply that there's not a great deal of like action going on here not a great deal of wrist action certainly no big follow through. So it's not a normal six iron shot it's just a little punt forward. So I'm in a good set up position leaning left punt it forwards and it rolls down, and the two balls the one I threw in the one I've just hit actually hit each other there because my chip was exactly as I wanted it to land and roll forwards as exactly as it happened with my throw as well. So there's options here when you're near the green you don't automatically have to pull out a lofted shot and hit it high in the air the low lofted clubs a little putting stroke the sick side from off the green the little chip and runs they can all be very very useful shots. Spend a little bit of time practice some see get used to them and then hopefully those little low runners will become a big feature of your game too.
