One way to ensure a solid strike on your chip shots is to use a hybrid. The shape and design of the head help good striking, even from awakard lies or when feeling anxious.
The fundamentals of a hybrid chip:
Use this shot when on the fringe/fairway
Hold lower on the grip for control
Have the ball postion in the middle of your stance
Withdraw left foot slighlty to move your left hip out of the way.(If left handed reverse as appropriate).
Use a putting stroke, so try to isolate movement to your shoulders (dont use your wrists)
In terms of strike, this shot is unlikley to go wrong, but intially pace control may be a struggle. Practice a few times before taking on the course.
