Video Golf Tip | The Putt-Chip Shot

Most of you putt the ball better than you chip the ball. I’m going to show you a very simple chip shot it’s called the “putt chip.” I am going to set up with my putter, ball under center. Then what I’m going to do is substitute a six or 7-iron and what you notice is that there is a slight difference in length so I will choke down on it. The adjustments that I am going to make is that I am going to position the ball a little bit back and I am going to put a little bit more weight on my front foot. At this point I am just going to make my practice strokes for feel. Then the idea is the stroke is just like a putting action, the loft of the club will carry the ball over the fringe and it will roll just like a putt from that point. Again, we make our practice swings for feel. Watch the positioning, ball a little back in your stance, weighing a little left, and then just stroke it like a putt. It’s a very effective shot around the greens and one that is going to get you up and down around those greens a lot more often.
