During this all-day event, we conducted clinics at six golf courses around the U.S. Each of the six golf course locations participating in National Instruction Day featured a lead PGA Professional, along with two guest instructors working in collaboration on a live, one-hour clinic from their respective location. I was one of the PGA Professionals, and was joined by: Michael Breed, Martin Hall, Hank Haney, Craig Harmon, David Leadbetter, Cameron McCormick, and Jim McLean. Blair O’Neal and PGA Professional Jeff Ritter handled the hosting duties throughout the day from Golf Channel’s headquarters in Orlando. It was amazing to see how much coordination went into this all-day programming on Golf Channel, with instructors located in multiple locations and uplinked by satellites back to Orlando, all while being beautifully orchestrated by Golf Channel studio hosts and producers.
Our collective goal was to help golfers improve their games by showing some of the tips and drills we each use in our daily instruction. What I hope you saw was the passion and determination that I’ve brought to my students for well over a decade. I’ve tried to help them enjoy the game of golf by shooting lower scores and by having more fun on the golf course. It truly was an amazing day, and I hope you had the chance to learn from these great instructors.

Always good info from SwingU
If you decide to chip with your sand wedge, then you need to understand the design the engineer intended for the player take advantage of the club. Regardless of the manufacturer of your wedge, they all have a similar design characteristic called the bounce.
The low point of a wedge is not on the lead edge; instead, the low point is back on the bounce. Your job is to land the back of the club into the ground before the front of the club, much like the way a pilot lands an airplane with the back wheels touching down before the front wheels.
If you land the club on the bounce angle, the club skids and pitches the ball in the air nicely. With wedges, your clubface is already aiming up some 50-60°, so it doesn't need your help to get the ball airborne; all it needs you to do is land the back tires in the ground.
