c Hi I’m paul wilson the creator of swing
machine and and the director of the paul wilson golf school at bear’s best las vegas and talk about different ratios that you
need to learn in order to choose the right golf club how to chip a golf ball the proper chip shocked so what is the ratio well libya’s it’s the distance you’re going
to be flying to golf ball how far the ball is going to be rolling so what we need to do is we need to
calculate out how far it is to the front of the green
about a yard onto the green because we’re gonna be flying our ball about a
yard onto the dream each of these different chip shot once we understand that amount we then look had our uh… pin placement and that will tell us how many of those humesha atler help far that differences compared to where we’re getting our golf
ball so in this situation right here on the
front of the green here i and i know cases often a second so you
see but if you look onto the very front about your arm of the brain that come out is about the same amount i have to roll the ball to that first hole fill in the situation that would be a
one told one ratio each of the different complacent have a
different ratio to it and it’s very very important that you
understand this very clearly because you want to be able to choose the bright
golf club the appropriate chip shot ok so what i’m
gonna do end up a soft these different uh… yard to give so that you understand exactly what club
ticket in what situation and understand the ratio so then you can use that into
the future okay so casey’s off aria let’s start with just with this language so here we go again a sandwich here you just pay for the after the primary
green and he’ll get a feel for uh… it is to get a sandwich so from
here four is the front of the green five is where i’m going to be landing my
golf ball five cases two right here so that’s what i’m trying to get my golf
ball from here i mean the peace off to do the rest of
the way to the whole so one thanks overhear which is pretty much of
his first in placement i’ve got a one ratio it’s pretty simple at a one to one ratio i want to hit the
sand wedge if you’re someone that has a lot wage anyone ship with a lot of which feel free to do that some people like
using their lob wedge better than the sandwich some people don’t even care e sand wedge i personally use the sand wedge so on a
one-to-one ratio that is the golf club i’m going to be
using now was take a look at the next the next ten so the next one i’m going to be using okay non-union right here how to chip a golf ball open sorry here i’ve got a manner soco its case this one off and you’ll
see what the ratio is to hear so four is the front of the green five is wearing them to be landing might
awful case but cases now i’ve got one for the first whole which we just talked
about right here this is where i’m going to get a
pitching wedge missus halfway between these two hole that is the one to ratio so it was five
for the from the drain and this is penny art so this is more role then how far i had to fly it
so one part fly equals to park role
pitching wedge to three now met this flag here this is where i
would hit and nine n five yards in front of the grain and
then it’s fifteen pages the here later with a one took three ratio okay cell hopefully you’re starting to understand how this works you’re looking at the
front of the green trying to look at the different pin
placements you’ve tried to determine how far it is
to fly it onto the very front of the green about a yard on the green you look to see how much role you need and then you choose the bright cord so from right here we’re going to go simon all the way to that can weigh down there that he’s going to be a one five ratio which you’ll see in a second so here i am one four is the front edge of the green five is wearing a land my ball okay so that’s one part fly now we’ve got one that one as the one to two okay this is the one three ratio that’s the one two four ratio this is where i wouldn’t be that it’s
halfway between them for them at all so now we got one and now i’m i don’t want the five ratio this is where i’m going to hit five
seven fly a seven iron bodyguard onto the
front of the green all the way there to that camp begets high noah sent at seven iron
roles five times as much as i fly so its principal again looking at the front of a dream we’re trying to determine club to hit in what situation some emanates indifferent chip shots
with the different clubs so you can see how each of these clubs hits the front
of a green and then roll so the different in placements soap we’ll start
with our sand wedge first relief from the dream go to this first complacent we know
that’s a one to one ratio so this club should hit this ball so that okay so that was very good right there
week within a couple feet with our sand wedge
now radio to a nine and and you’ll see that this club justin changing clubs i’m not going to
do anything different with my with my stroke ready at this club to go to the middle
pin placement ’cause that’s a one two-three ratio okay so here we go so they know that ended up about a foot
away from the whole within that time although seven iron out for you where to go all the way back are all the way down there to that last
emplacement so again if i hit the front of a drain ball’s gonna roll all way to
the back because i’ve got a seven and and that’s
a one to five ratio so here we go i think so if you take a look at that that ended up
a couple feet from the whole down there so just keep in mind what we want to try and do you changing the golf club four the difference in placements based
upon the correct ratio we measure this distance from here to
the front of the green where we’re gonna land of the ball and we measure that distant towards the
whole we’ve got a one to one ratio which is
the first the first hole here we’ve got a one to two which will be
halfway between the first hole in the second hold that’s going to be a
pitching wedge we’ve got a one two three which is the
middleton placement one before is halfway between the middle and the and
emplacement and then a one two five at the very end also keep in mind if the iffy at or the green sorry is appeal or downhill
you’re going to add or subtract a club to make up four the slope so if it’s
uphill you at a club instead of a one two three ratio maybe
it’s a one two four ratio so that you don’t get in line and he hit me back if it’s downhill you take a club off subtract one from your ratio so instead
of a wonderfully ratio it’s a wonder to so instead of a
nightmare you could’ve pitching wedge it i would think the best thing to do is
make a chart so that you understand those different ratios i mean you can
take them to the course with you and you’ll be able to tally and the
correct at club for the right distance okay you future
trips and i show you the stroke how to chip a golf ball now you get the ratios you understand how it all fits together symmetry ask your questions post your
comments below i’ll try to get to as many as I can

  1. Chipping the ball is pretty simple if you know what to do. Just remember the chipping ratios and you will become a great chipper in no time.

  2. For short putts just have the ball about 3 feet away. Take the club back and come through gently hitting the pin with the putter head. When you do you will be accelerating through it. This stops you thinking of the hole and gets you thinking about the target.

  3. Thank you very much. You can find out more information on schools at my main website. Paul Wilson Golf

  4. A lot of people don't know the correct chipping ratio. This allows you to determine what club to hit so it's very important.

  5. This has been an eye opener for me! I am looking forward to practicing this and applying it. With all the lessons I have taken, I am perplexed as to why I have never been told this before! Thank you!!

  6. What if the front of the green is ten paces away but the flag is 5? How do I calculate the ratio? Nice video, thank you!

  7. best golf instruction on you tube. thanks for the instruction and great tips. i have learned so much from you. any time im having trouble on the course i check out your videos and they put me on the right track. youre the man Paul!!

  8. Glad you liked it. You would be pitching from this situation. I will upload a tip on it in the future.

  9. Thanks. Golf is not too fun when you first start but as you become a little consistent you start to like it. Stick with it.

  10. You measure the distance from the green. Then you look how far on the green the pin is then you calculate what club you need to hit.

  11. Thank you very much. I just want to explain it in a way that everyone gets it. Then everyone can get better.
