How to Excel at Chipping with a Body Pivot

How to Excel at Chipping with a Body Pivot

If you have a poor chipping technique, I can help you. The reason for this particular shot is I have taken the club back, I have slid my legs into the shot, stopped with my body and then hit at it with my hands. It is an ugly feeling and it adds strokes to your score.

How to Pivot in a Chip Shot

The key to get the club accelerating through the ball is to pivot your body. Your body drives your arms, your arms drive the club. I am going to have a few practice swings here and notice how my body and my hips are turning around my left leg, my left leg stays stable but my body is turning around it. As my body turns towards the target my hands have to follow-through, my hands will only stop if my body stops. So rather than sliding and stabbing we are going to take the club back and then turn on through around the left leg. Nice firm wrists, crisp contact, better chipping, lower scores. Try that one!
