We always hear a lot of discussion about how the grain of the green can impact the speed and line of a putt. But did you know that grain also plays an important role in club and shot selection when you’re chipping from around the green?

In our latest short game tip, we've turned to Titleist Staff Professional James Sieckmann to share some advice on how to approach a chip shot into the grain.

As James explains in the tip above, sometimes taking less club and opening up the face in order to increase effective bounce as well as reducing the forward press will help the club skip through the turf.

Add this shot to your short game arsenal and be sure to check out the entire collection of tips featured in the 18 Shots Presented by Titleist series.
