Video Golf Tip | Holing Out Chip Shots

I want to share with you a drill that I give many of the PGA and LPGA students that I teach. This exercise is when they are practicing chipping they will take 10 golf balls, they will pick a target to go to, which is this hole right here, and their objective is that they have to hole out a chip shot. They are going to practice hitting to this target, trying to hole out their chip, until they move on to the next hole. If they go through their 10 golf balls then they will pick them up and hit them again. Why this exercise is so effective is that most golfers when they go out to play they are just hoping to get it close, I want you to make this. I am going to demonstrate for you. I am going to set up and hit a few shots for you. My objective is to make this chip shot. After each one I want to make the next one better. That one I hit a little left and a little long so I want to improve my technique on this one. Ok, good line right there just a little long so the next one I am going to hit a little softer, which I did, that is a pretty good one right there. Oh, almost made that one. I am going to hit another one for you. You can start to see how my pattern is getting better right there. What I am going to do is go through all these balls until I hole it out. If I do not do it I pick up my balls and start over. If you practice this way when you go out and play golf you are going to play more aggressive golf when you are chipping. You are trying to make chips and I promise you that you will start making chips when you play golf.

Fat Shots: Causes and Cures Fat shots are caused by either too steep a plane (slicers) or to shallow an swing (hookers)
One-Plane Downswing The one plane downswing you want to turn your core as you are throwing your arms across your body. This creates tremendous power at impact and without the timing required in the two plane downswing.
