    I recall seeing Snedeker many years ago chip on the green at The Masters. I'm sure he, and everyone else, was hoping not to take a divot on such hallowed turf

      And I saw Mike Weir do it on no. 8 at Augusta - his ball was on the front left of the green and the hole at the back left. He chipped over the intervening mound very successfully: I didn't see what damage the green may have incurred.

        Is it 17 at Glen Abbey that is sort of an L shape?

          I thought it was more like a 3 leaf clover, so I checked on google maps.

          It's somewhat in between....

          Anyways, a friend was thinking of joining Glen Abbey and was given chance to play it with the head pro. He ended up on the wrong lobe on 17 and pulled out his wedge and nipped it nicely over to the correct lobe with little to no damage done. Head pro didn't mind a bit.

          I wouldn't even think about doing that if I was on my own!

          Morikawa took a bit of a chunk out of the green (but he had money on the line....)

            So it’s okay to take a divot on the green?
            if I use my wedge on the green. I remember to refer to the video

              I've always thought this kind of thing is incredibly bad design for a course meant to be played by anyone other than a pro.

              Regular people can't always hit to the section of the green that has the flag, We won't really want to chip it, so this turns into an immediate 3 putt+. Just grow the front section to fringe height and never put the flag down there.

                Morikawa needs a lesson from this guy.... keep the green pristine.

                  I've chipped many times on Royal Ashburn greens, without incident and I'm not that good. (3rd and 7th hole come to mind but there are a few other places where you can get stymied by the fringe.)

                  For me it's basically a flop shot and it's important to open the club face and let the flange slide you under the ball. Don't turn the wrists, and follow through flat. Should land dead and roll a yard or so. The only hard part is not chickening out halfway through the downswing.
