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.

Drawing The Ball Draws are straight shots that fall to the left, which are different from hooks that curves to the left
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
Basic Chip Shot Use a firm wristed stroke, ball back in your stance, weight forward and minimum amount of air
