Main­tain the dish

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

Your goal is to make ball-first con­tact when you chip. But what you don’t want is to swing down so steeply that the lead­ing edge of the club digs into the turf, gets stuck, and you chunk the shot. You need a shal­lower ap­proach so the wedge glides along the turf through im­pact. You can get that by creat­ing a lit­tle dish in your left wrist at ad­dress (left), and main­tain­ing that slightly cupped position when you swing. The shaft will still lean slightly for­ward at ad­dress so you can hit down on the ball, but the dish en­sures the club doesn’t stub. That’s how you hit it crisply.
