This is the perfect place to start to get your fundamentals in order. You will learn what is chipping, set up, posture, and alignment.
Learn to master your fundamentals you learned in part 1. If you learn to practice with a purpose, you will get better faster.

Controlling distances comes from controlling three things.
2. Length of backswing
3. Contact (consistent contact)
Controlling your trajectory will allow you to choose the amount of rollout after the ball lands on the green. To control trajectory you need to control:
1. Face impact height
2. Loft at Impact
Alignment is key to chipping the ball close to the hole. Maintaining good alignment will also keep your technique solid.
