Richard McEvoy's chip and run tips
Around the Academy:

Richard McEvoy takes you through the chip and run shot
Hi my name's Richard McEvoy and this is my guide to the chip and run shot.

The chip and run shot is very similar to a putt but obviously you play it from just off the green.

Usually I'll use a nine iron so the ball can pitch onto the green and roll towards the hole.

Watch my masterclass

First the shot itself:

  • Play the shot with legs close together but the ball in line with your back foot.

  • Hold the club with your hands ahead of the ball - this will make the shot fly flatter in the air.

  • And lastly just use your arms to play the shot - exactly like a strong putt.

    When chipping uphill change the club to a seven iron. This will keep the ball lower and help it to roll up the green.

    When chipping downhill change the club to a sand iron. This creates more backspin and stops it from rolling down the hill.

    Wherever you are around the green just play the same shot and let your club do the work.

    Now you go and give it a go.
