Chipping - Your Real Target

When facing a shot from just off the green you must realize that the hole is not always your target, especially if faced with a sloped green.

Because the ball will be changing direction once it lands on the green, you cannot aim at the hole. Doing so will cause the ball to land directly on line, however, it will break away from your desired destination (the hole) due to the break in the green.

This is also true for up and down hill slopes. If you aim for the hole you may get the ball properly on line, however the ball will stop short or possibly run a good distance past the hole. If you simply aim at the hole, you do so while unconsciously assuming a flat surface.

Your 'real target' should in fact be the spot on the green where you will be landing the golf ball. Prior to picking such a spot you will need to evaluate the green and read its slopes and speeds. From this information you will then determine where you will need the ball to land in order for it to end up in or near the hole!
