"Affordabili-TEES'' pro Bryan Huff: Better chipping, Part I

   Most days, for most golfers, rounds are made or spoiled by how well they play around the green. A good chipping game often spells the difference between a shooting 90 or 95, 85 or 90, 80 or 85 and on down the line.
   In this opening installment of a four-part series, teaching pro Bryan Huff breaks down the basics of chipping.
   The series was shot at StoneWater Golf Club in Highland Heights, where Bryan is an instructor at Jimmy Hanlin Golf School.
   To book a lesson with Bryan, call 440-382-5305. His rates are $40 for 30 minutes, $75 for one hour and $200 for three hours. He also offers a special rate for younger players, ages 23 and under.
   Today, Part I: The basics
   Thursday, Part II: More fundamentals, including body position and Bryan's tip to think of striking an old-fashioned wooden match while planning a chip shot.
   Friday, Part III: The importance of weight shift while chipping off a tight lie.
   Saturday, Part IV: Bryan offers an overview of chipping techniques, using three wedges from three positions.
