‘Have a more up­right shaft for con­sis­tent chip­ping’

Golf World (UK) - - TOUR TIPS -

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.
