The ba­sic chip­ping tech­nique

Today's Golfer (UK) - - PETE COWEN -

Ev­ery sin­gle golfer who is bad at chip­ping should try this tech­nique. Graeme Mcdow­ell and Brooks set up like this, and it’s a fool­proof way to achieve a bet­ter strike. To start with, grip down the han­dle – al­most to the steel – and stand so the club­head sits al­most ver­ti­cal at ad­dress and the arms hang nat­u­rally. Don’t worry about the heel be­ing off the ground. The swing isn’t go­ing quick enough for the lie an­gle to in­flu­ence the strike. From here, slightly hinge the wrists as you take the club back and then let grav­ity and the weight of the club take over to re­turn the club to its orig­i­nal po­si­tion.
