The basic chipping technique
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.
