How to hit a ‘spinny’ chip

If you want to check the ball, you must re­lease the club.

Golf World (UK) - - ADVICE -

We were al­ways told we needed to move the ball back and set our weight for­ward to hit good chip shots. We now know that main­tain­ing loft on the club­face is the se­cret to those strikes that spin the ball on the sec­ond bounce. Swing with your trail hand only to mas­ter the right re­lease.

Play the ball cen­trally. Set a ver­ti­cal shaft be­fore swing­ing back...

…ac­cel­er­ate the club as you re­turn the shaft through ver­ti­cal at im­pact…

…and feel like your right palm faces the sky as you re­lease the club.
