Better Chip Shots With This Quick And Easy Short Game Tip
Chipping is simple.
At least it should be!
The amount of golfers that struggle with chipping is staggering. In my opinion, the main reason has nothing to do with technique per se, but tempo.
Most golfers that are poor chippers have poor tempo. They have stabby strokes.
So if your chipping could do with some help, here is what I suggest you do.
Get out your pitching wedge and practice swinging with good tempo.
To do this simply say “1” on your backswing, and “2” on your downswing and as you hit your ball.
But do this first without hitting a ball. Just get used to swinging back and forth with a “1”, “2” tempo.
Then when you’ve done that, put a ball in the way of your swing.
Make sure that you don’t change your tempo when a ball is in play. Just focus on your good tempo and let the ball get in the way.
If you do this, you’ll notice your chip shots will be better and more consistent.
