Video Golf Tip | Advanced Chipping Trajectory Control

Here is an advanced chipping technique that can really get you in control of the golf ball and help you make better decisions for the different types of shots that you hit and giving you more creativity around the green. You are going to take your most lofted club, you are going to take your standard chipping address, your stance is going to be a little bit narrow, weight is going to be on your forward leg and the ball is going to be in the middle of your stance. On some shots you want the ball to run a little bit more when you hit the shot so you do not have to fly it so far to the hole. To do that as you are coming through impact you are going to roll the club over so that the face of the club is going to be pointing down, or the leading edge is pointed down. This is going to make the ball come out a little bit lower and run significantly more. Here is the opposite. Make the ball stop sooner. As you are coming through impact the face of the club is going to be pointing up, the leading edge will be pointing up or facing more towards you. This is going to make the ball go higher and put more spin on it so the ball is going to stop sooner. Let me show you with a shot. Here is the ball where it is going to run more. Here is the ball where it is going to stop more. You can see the significant difference in how the ball responded. This gives you as the player a tremendous amount of creativity and flexibility to score better.

Slice Cure: Forearms To promote clubface rotation make sure your left hand grip is turned back enough and then take half swing concentrating on the rotation of your forearms
Three-Foot Putting Drill Put a tee in the back of the cup and hit it squarely with every putt
Wrist Extensor Stretch Getting full mobility in your wrist extensor is important because it allows your wrists to move properly in the backswing so you do not have an open face at the top of your backswing
