Hello Dariusz, hope you are well, long time no speak; I hope your golf is going well also. My golf is progressing fairly well and should see dramatic reduction in my handicap over Spring - Summer; October – March. By then I should have removed most of my old swing flaws.
One area I was hoping you may help me with is chipping, I have worked on all different methods over the years from Jim Hardy to David Leadbetter, specifically the short little high chip that travels between 3 to 6 meters, I have this ingrained belief that when I perfect this shot I will have handle on most aspects of the golf swing. I welcome your thoughts and suggestion on technique, stance – weight distribution – grip etc.

Thanks again for wonderful insight into the game and hope to speak soon.

Nice to hear from you, John !

As regards short game, which is not a subject to my biokinetic researches (since it is not a full motion) - I can only help with my personal experiences, for what they are worth.
Such little chips with not so much green to work with I usually play with my AW (52*), like making a putt, placing the ball at the toe of the club. I am then assured that the chip will not be too long since the strike is not being made by sweetspot of the clubhead. It is not my technique, as far as I remember I read it in one of Harvey Penick's books. The stance - always diagonal, yet narrow with the majority of the weight on the lead foot.

Cheers

Just a thought , this often works for me;
I grip the club open so I can use the bounce properly
I focus on really stabilizing the lower half, so it does not move in the downswing
I release the club head 1st in the downswing in a casting like move( the opposite of lag/power sequence)
i keep my arms connected to the body and let the clubhead pass my handscoming through impact.

Good Luck
