5-minute Chipping Drill on Slope
Week 2 • 4m 59s
In order to chip correctly, you need to bend from your hip sockets and hold your spine angle throughout the stroke. If your core is weak and inflexible, then you will inevitably stand up through the shot and end up flipping at the ball with the wrists, without much control. When your core is strong and flexible, you will be able to maintain your spine angle and control the distance with your body rotation-a much more reliable method of chipping than trying to scoop or flip the club with your hands.
Chipping Drill with Cardiogolf Slope
A chip shot involves precision to control the correct yardage and distance to leave the shortest possible putt. Because this shot involves a relatively short swing, there is little time for compensations, therefore the set-up and the fundamentals need to be correct. The key is to find a way to control the clubhead with the body, not the hands, while hitting the ball the correct distance. Here are a few fundamentals to help you with your chipping technique:
Less air time, more roll – example: roll balls can control roll more than air
Can use putting grip: to keep wrists firm
Feet close together-Keeps body more quiet
Weight towards front leg-hands pressed forward
Ball position is in the center or towards back foot depending on the lie
Use a putting stroke-straight back and through
Try to achieve a slight downward brush
Use slightly tighter grip pressure
Hold finish-don’t let wrists flips
