Are you struggling with your chipping? It’s frustrating and adds unnecessary strokes to your score. In this video, I demonstrate a drill that I know will help you immediately.
The chipping motion consists of the arms and hands swinging the club back and forth. The feet, knees, hips, chest and shoulders should move naturally as well. At no time should your lower body be frozen over the ball, and you don’t want excess tension in your wrists and forearms, either. A light grip will allow you to swing the golf club more naturally. This drill helps with both of those things.
Someone probably told you put the ball back in your stance when you chip, but it’s not usually good advice. It doesn’t allow the loft of the club to do its job. The ball should be in the middle of your stance to allow your arms to swing naturally and let the effective loft on the golf club get the ball in the air. Having the ball in the middle of your stance will also allow you to make better contact, which leads to more spin.
As you’ll see in the video, walking into the ball while swinging and brushing the grass will allow you to feel the fluid motion of the chip. Those ugly, skulled line drives will be few and far between once you try this drill a few times, and you’ll start hitting more pretty chip shots close to the pin more often.
Let’s Talk Gear: Frequency and Shaft CPM
When it comes to fine tuning a golf shaft and matching clubs within a set, frequency and CPM play a critical role in build quality and making sure what you were fit for is what gets built for you.
This video explains the purpose of a frequency machine, as well as how the information it gives us relates to both building and fitting your clubs.
