‘Have a more upright shaft for consistent chipping’
One of the most common mistakes I see from amateur golfers is setting up to a chip shot with the shaft of the club ‘laid down’ too much – in other words, too close to horizontal. That position makes the arc of the swing too big and leads to divots that are too long. Neither is conducive to consistency. A more vertical shaft at address will improve the quality and consistency of your contact and impact. Once you have a consistent strike, your judgement of distance will quickly improve and you’ll start chipping the ball close on a regular basis.
