Tamayo's concepts are not in the least incompatible with the putt chip technique.

Tamayo isn't concerned with how you get the club back. Whether you prefer to feel the club thru your hands or whether you prefer to control the shaft with your shoulders, he doesn't care. He just wants you shifting the weight  -or at least feeling like you are shifting - slightly forward on the backswing, and he wants you following the ball with your eyes on the follow thru.

I very much chip with my shoulders, with very little input from my hands. What I find advantageous with Tamayo's method is that I seem to end up with perfect posture at the completion of my swing.

I will say this: reading his book, and implementing three things: not grasping the club with my right hand until I have already set the shaft, pressing down slightly with my left foot on the backswing, and tracking the ball towards the hole with my eyes has tightened my chip dispersion considerably. Not completely sure why, but it works.

My theory is that following the ball with your eyes can eliminate some of the hit impulse and you are less likely to decelerate and get flippy. The putt chip locks the wrist so it basically eliminates getting flippy so it's not necessary to follow the ball with your eyes but I suppose it won't hurt either.

I bought the book on the OP's recommendation and it was a great investment. As the above person stated, it isn't a single fix, there are four main things to implement:
Stance and ball position for certain shots
Club angle at address and when to grip the club
Forward weight movement on back swing
Following the ball with your eyes

This technique won't cure a fundamentally flawed action, but it will allow you to make contact with the ball on a much more consistent basis. As most people with short game woes (myself included) it is consistency I'm after.

No. This shot requires height to stop quickly so the ball needs to be hit firmer with a very lofted club and you can't do this without wrist c0ck. A shot like this is tough even for professionals.

True confession: I am probably one of the WORST chippers in America...I suck with having had a multitude of chipping lessons and thousands of hours of practice and I can still manage to skull 50% or more of my chips. I hate it because other parts of my game are more like that of a 5 or 6 handi but my crap chipping adds at least 3-4 strokes to my every round.

So, I bought the book, read some of the key points and tried it out same day in the course in crap weather in NYC. With very wet conditions and temp greens, I did see some marked improvement in what's usually the most abominable part of my game.  

Basically I focused on weight on left side with backswing and eyes following ball on follow through (my simple mind can't handle much more than that!). Definitely felt different and after a couple crap shots, starting hitting it much more solidly. I need to spend much more time with it, but initial results have me feeling very good.

The one thing that's unnatural for me with this swing is "weight forward" in the backswing...it's counter to what my brain wants to do...you're swinging back with the club and upper body, but leaning forward w lower left side. Wondering if others struggle with that concept.

It works.

It's not magic. But it is remarkably effective.

For me the key was tempo. Once A bit of practice allowed me to get comfortable subtly shifting my weight to my left side on the backswing - a bit unnatural - and smoothly following the path of the ball to the target on the downswing and follow thru without pulling up, the technique is fantastically effective.

I think there are still individual aspects you have to personalize: I keep my hands quiet, use the image of a clock face for tempo, ect. But in three or four weeks of practice it's been one of the most dramatic improvements I've ever had in my game.

I am convinced that this is a keeper. As FatTick says it needs some personalization on tempo and for me the grip (weaker) but it really does work.

I have to agree with the positive feedback...  I bought the book after reading this thread. It is an easy read and I took it to the course yesterday afternoon after playing in the morning (first good day weather wise since November). I am a believer;  the technique is simple and amazing following the ball with your eyes does take you through to a nice finish.
One cautionary note at least for me: do not over do the weight shift forward it is a subtle weight shift going from 50:50 to 70:30 is not that much and I found if I over do it I would tend to dig the leading edge and back comes the bladed or chunked chips.
I believe I truly do have a bit of the chipping yips --- playing partners have commented multiple times that I have a beautiful practice chip/pitch but once the ball in front of the wedge I am chopping and flipping at it (hit instinct or whatever)
I found yesterday and today chipping at home that if I combine a very light grip 2 on a scale of 10 with the eyes following technique that the hit instinct is under control and I have a very nice tempo and finish.
Great thread for all of us that struggle with the short game --- thanks to all.
Would also recommend youtubes from Pete Cowan and Brad Faxon (at least for me they were complimentary to this technique)

I bought the book and tried it a few times in practice but couldn't quite get the concept of weight shift forward while you're taking the club back.

Very counterintuitive for me

It is actually very similar with the full swing: weight shift forward happens before the club has completed the back swing.

I think anything that speaks to anyone and helps them improve is great.

I bought it during the winter, read it all the way through, read some parts again, and promptly tossed it so it wouldn't tempt me. His technique and his descriptions are just counter to what I'm working on, and he just wasn't connecting with me. Maybe my fault, but if it's not getting me engaged or coming through with some stuff that gets my attention in a good way, better to leave it alone.

Again, seems to "speak" to many and that's great.

Curious if anyone looked at his other book on the full golf swing?

I have both books and thought the short game one was great. Improved my short game dramatically. However, for the full swing, I am confused. He suggests you turn your shoulders on a very vertical plane, such that it would be parallel to a club shaft touching your right toes and one inch forward of your left toes. And then he says that you should turn your shoulders vertically so that a club shaft across your shoulders would not have the left shoulder go out over the shaft on the ground. To do this as he describes, you would have to tilt your shoulders vs turning them. But if you look at the photos, he appears to be making a "normal" shoulder plane turn that is no where near vertical. Not flat but certainly not vertical.  And he appears to have a shoulder turn that is 90 degrees to the spine, as is recommended by virtually most (all?) instructors, not vertical as he says in his descriptions.

So for those of you who have read the full swing book, is he describing the move poorly and he is just trying to get a more vertical shoulder turn vs a flat shoulder turn, or am I just not understanding this?

Thanks to  anyone who has any insight into this.

The writer says the predominant backswing problem for amateurs is too flat of a shoulder plane in the backswing resulting in taking the club too far inside.  His simple backswing visualization recommendation results in the right shoulder going up and back while the lead shoulder goes down. I think it's a clever shortcut and works.

Sounds familiar.

I've only just noticed this thread and it's very interesting. Until late last summer I was an inveterate bump 'n run merchant because I couldn't chip properly to save my life. I finally decided that I had to figure it out so spent nearly two hours chipping at the academy course near me. I eventually came up with a technique that seemed reliable and effective.

The 'key' move I came up with was to think about trying to carry the ball forward on my club face. The thing is that in order to do that I am trying to keep the club head travelling parallel to the ground during and after the strike and to do that I have to allow myself some shoulder and head movement.

I'll study this more when I get home tonight but it sounds like I stumbled onto at least part of the magic formula myself. The only thing I might be missing is that I get hardly any backspin from my chip. It's basically a bump 'n run that bumps high and far enough to fly over bunkers.

I have found that this technique works for me but the think I am having problems with is the forward shaft lean. The way he talks about leaning the club towards the left leg and then taking a grip, has be closing the club face and almost doing like a hinge and hold.

I've been throwing clubs for years, but can never tell if I'm OTT or on plane.
