The chip shot involves a very short swing and is designed to improve accuracy when close to the putting green.

Here are a few elements to help improve your score around the greens:

  • Hold the club near the bottom of the grip. (This will allow the ball to be closer to your feet and give you better control of the club.)

  • Place your feet slightly open (turned to the left ) to the target and position the ball approximetly opposite the left heel. 

  • Maintain the majority of your weight on your left leg during the entire swing (there is no weight transfer).

  • Execute the stroke without breaking your wrists during the forward swing.

  • Even though this is a short swing you always want to accelerate through the ball.
