Chipping: Golf Lesson From Golf Quick Fix

Golf Lessons: Chippinggolfsmith Nothing makes up for missed greens in regulation like a solid chipping game. Tightening up your short game will turn many would-be two putts for bogey into a chip and a putt for par. Golf Quick Fix Attempting to lift the golf ball is one of the greatest causes of poor chipping. A weak chipping approach is exposed even more so  when a golfer attempts to to hit a high chip shot when there is really no need for it. This causes them to hit up at the ball in an overstated fashion which turns a bad thing into something worse. Before you try to lift your chip shot, you need ask yourself, what exactly are you trying to hit the ball over? Unless you are trying to hit over a sand trap, a group of bushes or even a range of tiers on a large green you will most likely be better served keeping the ball down. Low balls tend to get down quicker and roll. Golf balls that roll are less difficult to control. The next time you are watching the weekend highlights on the Golf Channel and they show the tournament winner chipping in from off the green, observe if the golf ball was hit high and bouncing or hit low and rolled-up into the hole. Whenever a golf ball bounces in it certainly makes for electrifying T.V., having said that the vast majority of the time you will observe the ball is usually rolling a good distance before it gets to the hole.

Golf Lesson: Don’t Lift The Golf Balledwin watts

Creating a one-piece chipping stroke with limited hand movement is imperative to developing short game precision. A stable left (lead) wrist is the most fundamental component. If you allow your left (lead) wrist to break down thru impact, it unnecessarily increases the loft to the golf club. That can often times cause your chip shots to fly higher and much shorter than you anticipated. It can also cause to hit the ball thin or even top it. A large number players mistakenly hinge their left wrist hoping to get the ball up into the air, which is completely unnecessary since you are using a club with loft built into it. Don’t fight this…you will just have to learn to trust it. Nevertheless, you need to have a firm left wrist and arm to hit a solid chip. Be cautious not to squeeze the club too tightly or tense up. Additionally, your hands and forearms need to be free to rotate without your wrists hinging during your back swing and more importantly, your follow thru. I heard Fred Couples recommend that letting your stroke be all about swinging your arms on short hits and have a quiet body and legs. Be all arms, so to speak. I find that this swing thought helps me not to decelerate through impact. taylormade-logo   Prior to hitting your shot rehearse chipping with your lead arm and the golf club establishing and sustaining a straight line thru your swing. The top end of the grip or the butt needs to set up stay close to the lead wrist thru impact…do not allow your wrist to breakdown. Remember to set up with hands forward of the golf ball, this will create the downward motion and crisp impact you need to chip it close.
