One-Arm Chipping Drill for Junior Golfers

One-Arm Chipping Drill for Junior Golfers

Make a Good Chipper a Great Chipper

With kids like any other golfer it is all about progress and as kids get better I need to adjust my teaching techniques. I want to take a good chipper and make him a great chipper. Here is one of the drills that will help us do this.

One-Handed Chipping Drill

I am going to have Luke here chip some balls, but I am going to have him do it just one handed, with his left hand. Now watch what happens here. Set up to the ball Luke. Pull another ball up. Give me another one. And another one. That is pretty solid contact. He has hit two out of four of the pretty well. I want him to start hitting them all with solid contact. But here is the point behind this, if he is just chipping one handed not only does it give him the feel of what the left hand and that left arm is going to do for him, which is bring that club through, but watch what happens when I have him put both hands on the golf club. That is a great golf shot, it is a great chip shot. What it does is that once he gets that second hand on the golf club it makes him feel like he has total control.

Adjust Your Teaching Methods as Golfers Progress

So I am going to take a good chipper and I am going to make him a great chipper through these little exercises and drills. As a kid progresses, or any golfer progresses, you need to adjust your teaching methods.
