Chip It Close
We all miss greens and when we do we’ve got to have the confidence that we can get the ball up and down to save par. A chip stroke is a stroke that has no cocking of the target side wrist! If you can safely land the ball on the green without using a cocked wrist then you are chipping!
The short game, chipping, pitching, and putting amount to over 70% of all the shots.
All great chippers of the ball have several characteristics in common….
* They change clubs for different length chip shots
* The weight is favoring the target side foot
* The ball is positioned back of center to ensure proper ball turf contact
* The ball is struck with a descending blow
* The clubface does not open or close during the stroke
* The hands remain passive during the stroke, no flipping of the wrist
* At the finish, the target side arm and club-shaft should remain in one straight line
