Short Game Advice From the Master Himself

Phil Mickelson, the short game master.

For amateur golfers who can’t find the time to keep their games sharp, the short game is the first thing to go and the last thing to come back. Here are a few basic tips from the master himself, Phil Mickelson (and his flip-flops), on how to chip properly. You, and everyone else, would be smart to listen closely. 

1. Keep your weight on your front foot

2. Make a decision: low or high?

3. Keep your hands ahead of the clubface

If many of us could chip even half as well as Lefty, our games would improve drastically. Practicing these simple tips and getting them engrained into our techniques is a great way to prepare for the season ahead.
