Video Golf Tip | Better Clubface Control via Chipping

In golf probably the most important and underrated element is the clubhead and clubface and what they are doing in motion. This becomes readily apparent in chip shots and this is the best place to learn it. I am demonstrating this with a putter as most of you with a putter would want to take the putter straight away and straight back not having any rotation in the face. In chipping I am a little further away from the ball, but if I did the same thing as with the putter what you notice is my clubface matching the putter’s. You would not have any kind of a toe up position at the point where the club is fully back. Also the palm of my hand would match the clubface and I start getting a relationship between my hands and the clubface as far as what they are doing. Chipping would relate to an underhanded tossing movement with your hand where you would toss the ball forward on your line. So as we get to this simple little in line movement, the club swinging directly away and directly through, there is really not much face rotation. We just make a little chip swing and consistently get the ball going forward down your line. As you practice this it is not only going to give you a sense of how to do this in chipping, this is the actual movement of the clubhead in a full golf swing. The more you practice your chipping you are not only going to chip better but you are going to get a better sense of your clubhead when you are making a full golf swing. It is not only going to help your chipping but your full swing as well. So practice and you are going to get better.
