Bob.
Your ShortGame dvd is excellent.

Here in southern Ontario; Canada not California!; we suffer thru a long winter season. I am fortunately that there is a golf dome where I can practice.

My question concerns the chipping stroke as described in the dvd. You mentioned that the stroke is a chopping motion not a stopping motion. I tried this technique at the dome but I am not happy with the feel. This dome does have what I would call a stance mat where you stand on ; basically solid rubber; and a hitting mat where you place the ball; looks somewhat like artificial grass. The mats seem to be too hard as I get the feeling that my club is bouncing off the mats.

Should I wait until spring to try this chipping technique where I can get real results? I do like the method as described in the dvd as it is basic and simple. Good job.

Save it until spring time. It is not worth it. Like you said the mats are too hard.

Thanks for your kind comments and stay in touch.

Golfingly yours,

Bobby
