Tips From The Deerfield Golf Academy Part One

Tip #1 Chipping



One of the biggest problems that we see with ameteur golfers is the desire to get “under the ball” when chipping. When golfers try to get “under” the ball, they start to develop bad habits which can cause problems in every aspect of the game. Instead of trying to get under the ball, try to have a slightly descending blow into the ball. An easy way to think about chipping is a lower case “y”.

Try setting up with your weight slightly on your front foot and lean the club forward. By doing this, you create a lower case “y”. If you are able to pivot or use your body correctly, this “y” will not change.
