Danny Edwards is old school. If his ball is just off the green, he doesn’t try a low percentage flop shot. He gets the ball on the ground and rolling, because he knows precisely how far it will roll.
That’s the beauty of The Chipping Equation. Those of you who would like to save three or four shots a round by getting up-and-down more often would be wise to attend one of the several seminars Edwards will be giving on his latest venture at LaFortune Park Golf Course in Tulsa on May 23 and May 24.
We say latest venture because Edwards’ life has been packed with adventure. He taught himself to play growing up in Edmond before it had a golf course, went on to become an All-American at Oklahoma State and a five-time champion on the PGA Tour. Along the way he built a hugely successful business in Royal Grip, became a champion race car driver and was an early labor advocate for his fellow PGA Tour members.
All of this is chronicled in his new book Driven. Edwards, a 2021 inductee into the Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame, became interested in recent years in helping as many average golfers as he can with the area where he sees them struggle the most, the short game and chipping in particular.
