Video Golf Tip | Five Ball Chipping Drill

A drill that many of my tour professionals use for chipping is called the Five Ball Drill. What you do in this five ball drill is you get five golf balls, you pick out a target to hit to, and the objective is you have to get three out of the five balls within a club length before you move on to the next hole. If you make one it counts as two. There are three levels to this game. Level one is three out of five, level two is four out of five and level three is five out of five. So it gives you some options when you go out and practice. I would like to demonstrate the exercise to you. What you are going to do is pick out a target like I have done here and my objective is to get three out of the five balls within a club length. Let me demonstrate. Here is the first one. I came up just a little short. My second shot, a little long. Now I feel a little pressure because I have to get these next three balls within a club length or I have to start he exercise over. That one was good, so now I have one point. Feeling the pressure here. Two points. Here I go on the last ball, and I got the third point. Now what I do is I pick my five balls up, pick out a new target and do the exercise again. As I get better I want to do four out of five and then five out of five. By doing this I am practicing more like I play and it will definitely lower your golf scores.
