    Thanks for the tip CJ. I actually chipped in today on the very 1st hole from just off the side of the green.

    It’s a great feeling …

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Troy Vayanos,
      Your welcome Troy and congrats on the chip in. It is a great feeling. its amazing when I do a chipping class how I describe the shot, visualize it and then react how often I chip in during the demonstration. I have started doing this on the course and it puts my mind into a great place and my chipping on the course has become deadly because of this. Best wishes to you.

    CJ, as I already have your signature series, I’ve used this shot and several more throughout my rounds. My short game was generally cost me most of my lost shots as I could be on the green in reg, but would 3-4 putt for a bogey or sometimes even double. My last round, I was able to use this to hit a 37 yard pitch and run using my lob wedge and make my birdie. Many thanks as I have dropped from a 29 hcp to a 7 in just 4 weeks. I’m aiming to be at a 2 or under by next July.

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Michael,
      Wow! that is amazing from a 29 to a 7 in a month. Keep up the great work. I am amazed and extremely proud of you. Please keep me informed on your progress.

  5. Tyler says:

    CJ, I struggle with lob shots and bump and runs when hitting off of hard-pan. When I hit these shots off grass I do pretty well. Any tips?

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Tyler,
      thanks Tyler for the question. the key to this shot is to keep your hands forward of the ball in the downswing and follow through. Make sure at setup your weight is left, hands are left, and the ball is back in your stance. Have you seen my short game DVD? Make sure you don’t burn yourself through the shot and you will hit these shots great.

    Question, CJ…Why not just use a less lofted club like a sand wedge or pitching wedge for the bump/chip and run? I use my 54 degree for most closer bump n runs and my pitching wedge for the ones that need to run out longer. Usually get fairly close, too! I’ve heard/read a lot of pros recommend a 9 or 8 iron for the same shot. For me, since it’s what I practice these with, it’s the sand or pitching wedge.

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Stan,
      Thanks Stan for the question. This shot is one that will fly a ways and still have a bit of check to it. Practice this shot and you may need it. This shot is also great on a windy day to keep the ball from ballooning on you on short pitches. Use your imagination and this shot will help you in your game.

  7. Bob says:

    This is a great tip, but one better is how do you use that kind of shot when the grass is growing towards you?

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Bob,
      Thanks Bob for the question. When the grass is growing towards you, you need to play it like a bunker shot and make a big swing and pop the ball out. The ball will not spin when the grass is growing towards you so you need to use height to stop the ball.

    CJ:
    your intro said, “the two most dreaded golf shots”. Where is the video on the second one?

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Phil estipular,
      thanks Phil for the blog post. Stay tuned and I am sure you will get the second shot this week.

    Is there any (ONE)secret to spinning the ball> I have tried many of the methods and still can’t do it after many years of trying. Bud Parker

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Bud Parker,
      Thanks Bud for the question. First and foremost what kind of ball are you using? You need to make sure you are playing a high quality ball as it will be impossible to spin the ball if your not using a ball like the pro v1 or Callaway black.

    CJ When playing a shot with a similar distance to green that has a lie that is buried in heavy fluff grass,what is the set up and club

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Roy,
      Thanks Roy for the question. When playing near the green and out of thick rough you want to use a club with a lot of loft…like a sand wedge or a lob wedge (60 degree). The main difference is you keep your weight left and you grip the club tight with the last three fingers of your left hand. This will keep the club face from closing in the rough. Hope this answers your question.
      Keep em Long and Straight,
      CJ
