Chipping, similar to pitching, describes a shot that doesn’t go full distance, but chipping is an even shorter version, so I’ve got my full shots, I’ve got my pitch shots, this is now a proper chip shot.
It would happen when I’m quite close to the edge of the green and it would happen when I just need to lift the golf ball over the edge of an object or over the edge of a longer grass onto a green and then roll it down towards the hole.
So, if I’m just to the side of green near a bunker, chip the ball on and let it roll out towards the hole. I would stand really close to together with my feet, even narrow than I might do for a pitch. I would still have the ball in the center of my feet. I would still grip down at the bottom of the golf to ride down towards the base even having one finger onto the metal when you are chipping gives you a lot more control and a lot less power.
