Here’s a bit more advanced concept that, as usual, requires some practice — but, once you start to get the feel for it, you’ll be able to save yourself a stroke or two per round! Some pros use this concept on a regular basis for their chipping into sloped greens, but for us amateurs, there […]

Chipping distance

On most chips in Golden Tee, you’re close enough that you won’t be able to crank the trackball forwards – these become true “feel” shots. If your wedge goes 50 yards, you’ll have to get a feel of how hard to shoot the trackball so you can execute chips of 40, 30, and 20 yards […]

You won’t believe me until you really see it, but wind plays a very big factor during chip shots in Golden Tee. Being so close to the pin, you wouldn’t think that the wind would blow chip shots off track, but it really does! A tip I use often times is to rotate my golfer […]

Chipping with slope

It’s very important to factor in the slope on your chip in Golden Tee. The best tip is to try to visualize where your ball will land after wind takes its toll, and then take slope into account also. Slope also affects a short, high chip much more than you think it would, so even […]

So which club should you use for fringe shots onto the green in Golden Tee? Well, much like real golf, the best tip is to pick the club that you think can carry the ball onto the green from the fringe, and you want to utilize as much roll as possible.

Lofty chips

When shooting out of a bunker, over a bunker, or any other shot where you need carry into the green, use a wedge to get that loft. The problem with lofty clubs in Golden Tee, as mentioned above, is that they are affected much more by wind and green slope. The best tip towards trying […]

Bump-and-run chips

These shots in Golden Tee give you the best chance of holing out a chip. If you are in the fringe and only have green in front of you, it’s definitely a great tip to pick a less-lofted club like a 5-iron to punch and run the ball to the hole. There are two big […]

Chips under 10 yards

There comes a point where you’re so close to the pin on a chip shot in Golden Tee where you can’t flip the trackball forward gently enough to keep the ball in front of the pin. That point usually comes from within 10 yards, or if you are using a low-iron for a bump-and-run. Here’s […]

Most amateurs have the mindset that if they roll off the green and can’t putt, they’ve lost a stroke. But, with enough practice and these tips, you’ll be holing out much more often! […]
