Set Up: Position and Posture

One of the big differences I see between a good Tour player, some of the greatest players who have played the game, and the average amateur player is the position the body is placed in its setup. I see a lot of amateur players end up in positions where the spine is quite curved, the hips too much underneath the body and the chin either poking this way or being tucked in too much. From a physiological point of view, the spine is in a position where it cannot function normally. And if it cannot function normally, it is going to have some effects on the technical aspects of the swing.

Getting Out Of the Rough Remember to keep it simple and be conservative in the rough, if there is a lot of grass between the ball and the club then use a higher lofted club
Chipping Technique: Wrist The most common reason for poor chip shots is the breakdown of the wrists during the swing, try the Tic-Tac swing aid which clicks whenever your wrists breaks during the swing
Chip Based On Your Skill Level There are many ways to play chips shots around the green; select the shot that is most appropriate for your skill level to lower your scores consistently
