Video Golf Tip | Chip Like a Putt

If you’re having trouble with your “chipping”. There’s two types of methods that you can use, there’s the “chip/putt technique,” which is using the same technique as your putting with your chipping, and there’s also the “pivot technique.” Let’s have a look at the “chip/putt technique.” First of all, take a few balls from off the green, pick your putter up and grip with your normal putter grip and take your normal putter stance. Now the only difference we’re going to change here is we’re going to put our weight more into the left side, probably 60 to 70 percent on your left side. I want you to just to go ahead and then hit some putts from here onto the green. Now because there’s no loft on the putter, we don’t expect the ball to go up into the air, we’ll make a very good technical stroke. Then once you’ve got the feel for that do exactly the same, pick up your chipping club. I’ve got a chipping wedge here, take your putter grip, take exactly the same stance, lean a little bit into the left side and then just feel like you’re making a putter stroke. What will happen is the loft of the club will lob the ball onto the green, you’ll make a simple stroke, just like your putting stroke, which is very uncomplicated and you’ll get rid of those chipping nerves. Try it, it works.

Slice Cause: Right Elbow Tucking or pulling your right elbow down during the downswing causes your left elbow to move away from your body, creating an angle that leads to a slice
Hands Control the Clubface Monitoring the position of your hands and wrists at impact creates a square clubface for straighter shots
One Plane Arm Movement Straighten your arms while rotating counter-clockwise from the backswing through impact, squaring the clubface naturally
