What the heck is the difference between a chip and a pitch?
A chip is just around the green and has less airtime and more roll time. A chip stroke is small in comparison to a pitch, which is essentially a mini swing. A chip is just off the green from the fringe, short hairs or rough. A pitch, as I mentioned, is a mini swing. It requires more rotation than a chip shot. A pitch is typically 30-50 yards from the green and requires more airtime to get the ball to its landing area.A PITCH is typically from the fairway or from the rough.
