    Hi Shawn,

    Most tips on chipping that I’ve come across lately advocates using the bounce of the club, and one of the way to achieve that is less shaft lean and ball positioned more in the middle of the stance (as opposed to back foot), an example of which can be found in attached link https://youtu.be/gUTF6MBPVmw. I do prefer chipping the ball positioned off my back foot but I must admit I do encounter problems with the leading edge digging in too much. Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on how the seeming different approaches advocated by you and other coaches can be reconciled.

    Thanks

    I started working with left hand low chipping this past year. I find I can come in shallower to the ball than using the regular grip. A lot more spin doing it that way. Going to keep working this technique, but I’m happy with it so far.

    Your explanations are so logical and I love your imagery. Reversing the gripping for chipping and then returning to the usual gripping seems to positively refresh the swing grip.
    Is there any cross-over benefit within the brain by practicing the swing in the non-dominant direction… training with say a left-handed 5-iron over several months while still training in the dominant direction with your regular clubs?
    Wasn’t it Mac O’Grady who could play from the right and left side in perfect form?

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 1)

Published

It’s the move we all want in the downswing… and rightfully so. Shallowing the club is a great way to put your swing on plane and really start to narrow you misses. All shallowing moves are not equal, however; in fact, there are a couple that you’ll definitely want to try to avoid because they can actually have the opposite effect!

We’ve broken this series into two parts to make it more digestible. This is Part 1. Thank you for watching!

Shallowing the Club: Two Moves to Avoid (Part 2) is coming soon!

In this video, I use technology to help you better understand how you can pitch the ball like the pros.

When pitching, you may have learned to keep your weight on your lead foot throughout the shot. That’s not always the best approach. With BodiTrak, I show you how to move your weight correctly to achieve more consistent strikes.
