Chipping Golf Tips

Chipping Golf Tips

This video is about chipping golf tips, this one in particular is the one when you are thinking is it a ‘putt or a chip’? 

When you are just off the green and on the fringe you always have a choice to either putt it or chip it onto the green, the majority of amateur golfers would always take the safest option and putt the ball, this is because of the lack of confidence in executing a delicate and effective chip.

Golf balls and putter - chipping golf tips

So in this video I am going to show you how I play these chipping golf tips, still using a putting motion but using a sand iron instead, it’s an easy technique and over the years it has always yielded effective results for me, it only takes a bit of practice to master the art of chipping just off the green – instead of the easy choice of putting it.

You will see in my video, when I address the ball I make sure that I keep my body weight on my left foot to alleviate any thin or fat shots, these shots are caused by too much weight on the right foot so you hit up on the ball and thin it, and when you use too much wrist action in the shot that you end up hitting the shot fat – so we want to avoid these types of shots that can cost your score card dearly!

When I am reading these types of chip shots, I tend to treat it like a putt, so I read it like a putt with the exception of where I want the ball to land and ensure that I get it rolling on the correct line towards the hole – so you read the break, pick a spot to land on and then execute the shot with confidence.

So as you watched in the chipping golf tips video:

  1. Keep your weight on your left foot
  2. One motion, just like a putt but with a sand iron
  3. Keep it an all ‘arm’ motion shot and don’t break your wrists
  4. Read it like a putt
  5. Pick a spot on the green where you want to land the ball
  6. And pick the pace of the shot just as you would when making a putt

It is a simple method that works for me and I am sure it will be an effective method for you too. As always, if you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will gladly respond to you as soon as possible.

Happy Golfing!
