Video Golf Tip | Chipping With a Pivot

If you have a poor chipping technique, I can help you. The reason for this particular shot is I have taken the club back, I have slid my legs into the shot, stopped with my body and then hit at it with my hands. It is an ugly feeling and it adds strokes to your score. The key to get the club accelerating through the ball is to pivot your body. Your body drives your arms, your arms drive the club. I am going to have a few practice swings here and notice how my body and my hips are turning around my left leg, my left leg stays stable but my body is turning around it. As my body turns towards the target my hands have to follow-through, my hands will only stop if my body stops. So rather than sliding and stabbing we are going to take the club back and then turn on through around the left leg. Nice firm wrists, crisp contact, better chipping, lower scores. Try that one!

Chip Shot Basics Use a narrow stance with weight on forward leg, knees flexed angling toward the hole and hands in front of club face
Hitting Your Driver Tension is the cause for most driver and long iron problems, players tense their muscles in the set up and sap all their ability to create power during the swing
Practice With Purpose The better you practice on the range and the more organized you practice session is, the simpler the game of golf will be out on the golf course
