Video Golf Tip | Chipping Stance and Motion

Although there are a variety of ways to chip the ball, we like to teach the chipping motion as a mini golf swing. We want to get our students involved with giving a little bit of wrist action and a little bit of pivoting action, starting to get some energy into a little swinging motion and this is where we start employing and timing that little bit of wrist and body movement. Variations would be to take some of the wrist out, and a little bit of slowing the body down for gentler shots. Positioning: we want the ball positioned slightly behind center, so we play the ball at or slightly behind center; weight slightly to the left; and then the swinging action is a little relaxed in the wrist going back, a little turn to the body going through. You hear so much about the hands leading the clubhead. What I would have you understand is that for the hands to lead the clubhead, the turn of the body actually leads the hands into and through the hitting area, that’s part of what makes that golf club bottom out on the far side of the swing. What you notice here with a small swing is that I can get a lot of energy. Again, as I do this what you notice is the club centered and in front of my body at the follow-through position. We are not going to lead with the hands and hit these block type chip shots. So get to a good set up and start involving a little wrist action and a little turn to your body. Start working on the timing in your full golf swing here with your chipping motion. It is not only going to help your chipping it’s going to really help your full swing.
