Chipping Lesson - How To Properly Chip A Golf Ball

Are you tired of looking like you do not even know how to play golf even though you just missed the green? Sounds like you could use a quick and easy online chipping lesson. So what exactly is chipping? The definition in English is a shot that travel longer on the ground than it spends in the air. You do not need to be in the fringe to execute this shot. You can be farther off of the green and still use a chip since it determined by how far it rolls versus how long it is in the air. So to stop the madness, use these three simple tips to not only look like a golfer but get the ball in the hole faster to lower your scores:

Since we are trying to keep the golf ball low while chipping, we will want to de-loft or take the loft off of the golf club during the stroke. The good news is that we can pre-set this position. As we take our stance, this will be easy to do as we point our back foot directly at the ball. This will be the right foot for right-handed players. In addition, it is important that your hands are closer to the target than your zipper. I know it feels weird. Remember, we are attempting to take loft off of the club face so the grip of the club will be closer to the target than the club head.

Now to make it feel even more different, we will talk about weight placement. Since you have the ball placed off of your back foot, you should have more weight on your leg closer to the hole. This is opposite of what would feel “natural” I know. For right-handed golfers, this simply means that you will have more weight on your left foot or left leg. The question of how much will vary from player to player. With that being said, it will probably end up somewhere between 60-70% on your forward foot. Think about it, any good golf shot that is struck has more weight on the forward foot than the back. Now you can simply make a putting stroke. This means your wrists should not break and to use fancy teacher talk will remain one lever.

Once you have made your stroke, the grip of the club should be past your front leg. Most amateurs get in trouble because they flip or pop at a chip shot and the grip or handle of the club never gets past their forward leg. They have broken their one lever into a two lever system. This usually means that they have hit the shot on the bottom of the club face and controlling distance will be a BIG challenge.

Count to three very slowly once you have reached the finish position is an easy way to monitor your positions. This will give you time to evaluate your finish and improve it quickly. To be a consistent chipper, you must learn to make contact on the same spot on the club face.

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.


Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.


I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Member Question - How To Control Putting Speed

Member Question: I have a hard time with hitting two putts in a row the same speed. Even on the practice green, my putting speed is horrible. I can try to hit a ball about 15 feet and try to hit a second ball to barely touch it. The second ball rarely comes close to being close to the first ball. Sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. The result is just not consistent. Any putting tips to help me with my putting speed?


Thank you for your question. When students are that inconsistent with speed of putts or distance control, it is typically because they are not hitting the putts solid.

Now, what does that mean in English? In hitting any shot solid it means that you hit the club-face in the same spot on every stroke. If you need to know how to find the sweet spot on your putter, it is easy to do. Simply let take your putter by the grip and let it dangle using only your forefinger and thumb. Next take a golf ball and start tapping the putter face. Once the club head goes straigh…
