The average amateur golfer could take several shots off their handicap by improving their chipping.  As Gary Player used to say ” learning to roll three shots into two” around the green.  Here I discuss the faults often seen as I am teaching amateur golfers, and more importantly, how to fix them!  Watch this video, then head off to the practice range and start lowering your scores!

I have never seen a low handicap player who is a poor chipper and I’ve never seen a high handicapper who is.  Work on your chipping to lower your scores!

Lead arm staying straight.

In order to control the bottom of the arc, the lead arm must remain straight throughout the stroke.  Any bending will cause the bottom of the arc to change and a poor shot will result.

No Peeking.

Stay down on the shot.  Try to wait until you can see the spot where the ball was before you look up.

Wrist Breakdown.

Keep the handle and the clubhead moving at the same speed.  This prevents a breakdown of the lead wrist which will change the loft and cause the ball to come up short.
