A good day chipping may completely save your round. A bad day, well…let’s just say it can make your scorecard a little more “interesting.”
Since virtually every golfer has experienced both sides of the chipping coin, let’s discuss how to take the unpredictability out and bring the par-saving fun in. Poor results on the golf course don’t happen on their own without some help.
When you skull a chip shot that goes running across the green, or stub a shot, it usually happens because of the two most common faults, and knowing the faults will help you avoid them.
FAULT 1: Many golfers do not realize that when they choke down on the club to get a better relationship to the club head, it usually causes a strong grip. A strong grip means that the lead hand has been turned excessively so that the entire back side of the hand can be seen.
FAULT 2: We see lots of golfers in their chipping, pitching and even full swing who don’t hit down properly on the ball. They cast or have early release which can cause you to have an inconsistent short game and in the full swing, causes loss of distance.
To help you practice perfectly on these two faults, we have created the Short Game Impact Trainer. Watch below to learn more…
The club head is the same as our Perfect Impact Trainer that has negative loft. If you are not making good impact and leading with your hands, this club will show you if you are not hitting down properly and let’s you adjust to get the right feeling at impact.
