Stand up to greenside shots
▶ For a basic chip shot, you want the club to make consistent contact with the ground in a position that’s just in front of the ball.
The easiest way to make that happen is to start with nice, tall posture, with your toes angled towards your target (far left). As the round progresses and you get a little tired and careless, the tendency is to slump your back and set up too square with your body and feet (near left). This forces you to straighten up through impact, which costs you that repeatable contact. If you maintain good posture, you’ll hit crisper chips that set up easy par-saving putts.
