Chipping to the Green Tips

Posted on: 9 June

To chip effectively, you need to engage your hands and let them work for you.  

Hinging your wrists is critical to a good chip shot because it allows the club to get up above the grass and hit down with a descending strike.

There should be one main goal before executing each chip – you next shot has to be a putt. Don’t try to pull off a miracle chip and leave the ball in the same type of rough on the opposite side of the green. Remember, even if it means a longer putt, make sure the ball finishes on the green.

The more you practice your chipping game, the more likely you are to start enjoying it. Dedicate some practice time to your chipping technique and you’ll be happy with the rewards in the end.
