Chip This Way

Chipping fundamentals from Coach Gary Alliss.

Chipping is a small swing that does not involve the wrist and very little weight transfer. In many ways, it’s like putting.

But chipping also offers more club variety, depending on the lie.

Instead of grabbing the same wedge for every shot around the green, try practicing with different clubs. With each shot, pick a spot on the edge of the green to serve as your guide. Now chip onto the green and watch the ball run. This way you’ll get a feel for which club to use in each situation.

In the video below, Golf Monthly Coach Gary Alliss offers tips on how to get it up and down from around the green.
