Chipping Tips For Golf

in Ball
Chipping should not be a difficult part of the game. Other than putting it has the fewest moving parts of any other golf swing, yet many golfers find it difficult to place the ball well with their chip shots.

As difficult as it is to become good at chipping, it's a very important part of the game. Even the better golfers chip between two and six times per round. This is a high-risk high-reward type of shot. With chipping it is easy to hit the ground before the ball, risking a wasted shot on a ball that only moves a few feet. It is also easy to hit the chip thin (striking the ball too high), in which case your ball will likely roll well past your target.

A good chip will reward you well with a shorter (see: easier) putt, which will enable you to make more pars and birdies on any hole where you find yourself just off of the green.

Most golfers make the mistake of hitting the ground before the ball (called a "fat shot"). My chipping technique will show you how to strike the ball correctly and lead to more consistent chip shots, in turn lowering your rounds.

As with anything in golf you will need to practice, but I am confident that, with my golf chipping tips, it will not take long for you to become a great chipper. You will need to stay patient and realize that improving your chip shots is worth the time you put in. Just remember, cutting just a few strokes off your game with some sound chipping advice will go a long way. It is a great feeling to start improving on something you work hard at. Start with chipping and work your way into different areas and soon youll be golfing better than thought was possible.
